Default 60 k "B" service

I went to the dealer and bought oil and a filter with a tiny washer. I went to a guy on the corner who had helped me remove bio-diesel, wherein he impressed me as capable and helpful. Pulled in without an appointment, and came back in a few hours. Total cost: about $110.00. Compare that my 50k "A" service which included a fuel filter, front brake pads and battery all of which they said I needed: $1600.00. I think I learned my lesson. I still want to find a specialty shop that really knows my car though. The dealer was talking about a transmission fluid job for $600.00. The parts guy said it was due at 75k, and the mechanic said 90k. I want to make sure there are no software upgrades or other esoteric specific requirements as soon as I figure out better ways to upkeep the high tech and the sophisticated systems. I still need to fill the DEF and change the AC/cabin filters and rotate the tires.

I had my trans fluid changed at the dealer. Took them about an hour or so. They charged me $250. Not too bad. They also did the transfer case, and front and rear diffs for another $250. Maybe the $600 was for all 4 things???
