All depends on what they do for their service. Not all dealerships are the same. I would expect yours would take about 3-4 hours.

I skipped out on my 30k... I just got new tires so didn't have to worry about rotation, bought a k & n air filter and popped it in myself, had my oil changed and got my front and rear diff replaced as well as my radiator flushed at ez lube, I'm planning on just getting my brake fluid replaced now then I'll take it in for the 45k or 60k service...the dealer is just such a rip off, they were trying to charge me like 450 bucks for everything.

The stuff I got done took about 45mins (oil change, radiator flush and differential fluids replaced)

I would expect a few hours of waiting. Took me about 4 hours to do it in my garage (engine oil, tranny and diff oil, air filter, brake bleeding, rotate tires).

The other nice part when you do it this way is you don't have to worry about the 15 mile "test drive" they take in your vehicle. Shouldn't plugs be replaced at $30K?

Just becareful on those quick lube places. They are my best customer. Usually I have 1 a week where someone is coming in from the quick lube, Firestone or Merchants/Goodyears mistake.

ya, the quicky places are def kinda sketch but these guys have been doing my oil for a while so it seems alright. Only thing I am kinda worried about now is the checking of the steering, I wonder if that's what they do on this "test drive" haha that sounds real shady too.

My steering when i go to the far ends like lock positions on both sides, sometimes it'll make this like swishy sound like air is being released. I've this is normal on some cars but it still kinda worries me. I wanted to take my car in to the dealer to get it checked out under warranty but they want to keep it for like a week.

Getting a maintenance time estimate is like getting an estimate from a contractor....totally unreliable. It could take 2 hours or all day or two days....spin the wheel buddy, but most shops will say drop it off in the a.m. and pick it up in the p.m. Stuff happens and it can get backed up.
