Default Vehicle service...Am i getting ripped off?

Went in for a simple oil change and they gave me a list of services. My mileage is at 20,955 and my dodge dealership says i need Differential service($289) Throttle body service($189) and PCV Service($189) I am nnot questioning the service but the pricing, are the accurate? too high? and can you shed any light on what these services are for and if they are needed.

THanks

At 20,000 your truck should be due for nothing more than an oil change, Remember every time these advisors sell you on something they make commission.

Agree with everyone else. What a ripoff. Follow your manual and take it somewhere else if you can.

STEALERSHIPS, your hard earned money does better at a local ase shop. Start a relationship with a local shop. I take coffee to my shop and chit chat with them every now and then and it's just a nice thing to do. When you got something wrong and can't fix it yourself they tend to help out.

A service advisors job is to add 2 lines of service to every customer that comes in. Follow your owners manual and go somewhere else.
