Default My tuneup situation... need advice

ok well i am in need of a tuneup and im in a problem. im going to get a 15k mile tuneup and my car is at 45k, well actually 48k but im gonna get the 15k tuneup.

at every 30k miles your supposed to get a major tuneup and i bought my car used which had 40k on it. im not sure if the previous owner did the 30k tuneup so i am not sure if i should get it or not.

the mechanic told me it would cost 70$ for a full inspection, but if i get the 15k tuneup that includes the inspection which is around 160.00. A 30k mile tuneup costs somewhere around 500$.

what should i do?
should i go for the 30k or 15k tuneup?

First of all, what kind of car do you have? It makes a difference: Platinum plugs? Second, the tuneups are at 30 k intervals, depending on the car. Third, check your fluids and see what they look like. If they look pretty new, chances are the 30 k service was done. If you think it may have been done, just do the oil change and the tire rotation which is all that is technically required by Subaru (check your manual) until 30k intervals

If you don't know if the 30 k service was done you should do it all now. Even if it was done you are 2/3 of the way to the next major service so it will not be that much of a waste. $500 is typical but if you want to save $$ you can do a lot of it yourself with simple tools.
