I recently brought my 2010 Toyota Prius in a scheduled 30,000 mile maintenance. I usually bring it to the dealer because its just so convenient and pleasant there, but this time I brought it to a local mechanic I've used before because I assumed it would be much less expensive.
I'm not so sure this turned out to be cheaper.
I'd love to get feedback on what you think of these prices. This is in central New Jersey, assuming mechanic prices are regional. Below is what was done and what it cost.
