Several questions here. First, is there a major benefit to having the 30K service done at a dealership versus a good shop? I am finding dealers want $900 plus, as opposed to $300 elsewhere. Couldn't you just pay the dealer to read the computer and have the work done by someone else? Second, is $900 the going dealer rate? Three, I can only put about 12 gallons of gas in the car, even if the computer says 30 miles to empty. I thought the fuel tank was larger. Is that normal? Finally, I have been reading about the RMS failures. I have several large drip marks under the engine, but it almost looks like axel grease. What are the symptoms of RMS failure? Is it a continual leak or intermittent? When should I have it looked at? Thanks for all the superb advice.
