Right, take it to another mechanic to do the plugs, trans drain and fill w/filter, no flush, and coolant flush. You can get a better prices. Plugs should be around $100 w/labor, trans $120, and coolant, $100. The rest I wouldn't worry about till you have an issue. Put some techtron fuel cleaner in your gas tank next fillup if you want.
