Next week Gwendolyn goes in for her 90,000-mile service. I do not expect any change from a $500 bill.
Incidentally, the 99s and earlier are eighty bucks cheaper; they have a fuel-filter replacement, which I don't, but they don't have the cabin air filter to pull, and I do.
I should point out here that Sandy, had she lived, would be pulling in for 60k about now, and that's closer to $800. Then again, she had a timing belt which was due for replacement.
