I took my Prius in for it's 30,000 mile maintenance last week. It was my first service done after the complimentary 2 year/ 25,000 service mile had expired. I was surprised when checking out that they'd done a 4 wheel alignment for $79.00. I wasn't expecting this as it's not shown in the Prius Owner's Manual nor information posted here. What particularly chapped me was that the billing sheet said "Customer requests this service." when I hadn't nor would I because I hadn't noticed any of the symptoms of the wheels being out of align. I asked to speak with the Service Manager and was told that "Toyota recommends this for tire wear, to extend the life of the tires." I told him that if Toyota recommended it then it should be noted in the list of services identified for the 30,000 mile check-up in the manual and it wasn't. (I showed him the manual.) I also told him that they should have approached me about needing this and sought my approval before doing it and that it felt like I was being "up charged". The end result was that he gave me $25 credit towards my next service visit. Are others experiencing this 30,000 mile alignment service "recommendation"?
