    We have a 2013 Prius Plugin with slightly over 100k miles. My wife insists that she wants to take it for service to a Toyota dealer. There are no maintenance issues we know about. I recently had a good experience with an auto repair shop who printed out a standard check list of 105+ service on our vehicle and they charge a little over $100, unless repair issues were discovered. Opinions?

    Congrats on the 100k milestone!!
    Here's what the warranty and service manual that comes with the car says for 100,000 miles. All of them are fairly simple to do at home if you're a diy kind of guy. I would not let the dealer do any of them. And there is a school of thought that, if the engine coolant is still nice and pink with no impurities, there's no need to change it.

    100,000 miles or 120 months
    • Check installation of driver’s floor mat
    • Inspect and adjust all fluid levels
    • Replace cabin air filter (vehicles with solar power ventilation system)
    • Replace engine oil and oil filter
    • Replace engine/inverter coolant
    • Rotate tires
    • Visually inspect brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs

    Driving on dirt roads or dusty roads:
    • Inspect ball joints and dust covers Inspect drive shaft boots
    • Inspect engine air filter
    • Inspect steering linkage and boots
    • Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis and body

    Driving while towing, using a car-top carrier, or heavy vehicle loading5:
    • Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis and body

    change the inverter coolant and maybe the pump at the same time. if your guy is competent, get his price and dealers.
    think about tranny fluid

    save your money for 'the big one' at 120k.

    Agree with @bisco. 120k is spark plugs, which is more complicated than it should be, but not actually hard.
