So, we didn't get around to taking Sherman in for maintenance until yesterday. Here's the run down:
1. Oil Change: 0W-20 oil change, changed oil filter, set tire pressure, topped off all engine fluids, reset maintenance minder, 27-pt inspection = $37.49
2. Rotate & Balance: all 4 tires = $39.88
3. Air Filter Element: replaced engine air filter element = $50.43
4. Dust & Pollen Filter: replaced cabin air filter element = $77.17
5. Replaced 3 wiper blade rubber inserts: $16.07 (not part of maintenance due, but they needed it!)
6. Transmission Fluid: drained & filled transmission fluid & did road test = $46.67
7. Tax & Environmental Recovery Charges: $17.24

TOTAL: ~$285
Done at ~28,100 miles

We ALSO had them look at our smashed fog lights. At first they said that they don't cover that, but then we said we had already called American Honda Cust Service & opened a case and that they said to talk to the dealership first or go through them, and after saying that they told us that they'd goodwill the fog light assemblies for both sides, but that we'd have to pay $50. They put it in writing on our receipt and said we could have it done once they can get the parts (the fog light assemblies are on back order indefinitely until they can get parts again from Japan). But it was nice that they said we could do it when we could do it, even though we'll soon be blowing by the 36k mile warranty cut-off.

One more thing I'd like to mention. When we first called around to 3 different dealerships for quotes on this maintenance, they ALL tried to upsell us & tell us that we had to do all these "extra" things for the "30k mile service." So to make sure we just got done what we needed, we brought in a copy from the manual that shows what the MM codes are & I looked up the prices for the parts (like the wiper blades & air filters) & wrote them right on there so we had all of that information with us when we went in. Saved about $100 from what they were going to charge us for their "30k mile service package."
