    Wheel rotation, wiper blades, brake fluid, general inspection, some component lubrication and some drain hole cleaning. $200 for that stuff isn't bad, especially if you're not mechanically inclined or don't have the tools/space/time to do them yourself.

    The problem is that some dealerships will take this opportunity to try and get the owners to replace certain components early through recommendations on the general inspection they do. It's a profit generator that gives them an opportunity to pitch more profit generating services.

    As stated, huge ripoff.

    Dealer wiper blades suck by the way, if they are the OEM.

    In what way do they suck? Ours are working quite well.

    In the snow. Perhaps they've improved the design since the God awful blades my 2014 came with. Snow would build up on them so bad they'd stop wiping properly requiring pulling over and clearing them. Horrible.

    Shouldn*t be a problem with the wiper blade deicer that mine has. Hopefully

    I haven't had a chance to test mine, but I had one in a previous car. All it did was keep snow from building up at the bottom of the windshield. The wipers wouldn't contact the heated area long enough, so they still built up plenty. Hope the Mazda's is better.

    They are not. In March I drove from Northern VT to PA during a snowstorm when the temp was around 25 degrees. I had to pull over 3 or 4 times to clear off all the snow and ice that was built up. This was with the defrost on high.

    Wouldn’t the deicer in theory help release frozen wipers upon startup more than keeping snow from accumulating during storms?

    The placement leaves me to believe it would help with both, but be better suited for the former.

    Mazda's equipped with Windshields don't do defrost Bruh. So I keep feeling the soft touch material in Dallas on 45F mornings with Dew waiting 5 minutes for it to clear.

    Sweet!

    Edit to add: The only mod I would not make to my car is installing LED backup lights. I'm very careful when walking though parking lots, and walked right behind someone who was backing up because their LED backup lights were lost in the daylight. Those lights need a daytime contrast.

    Nice and it matches your white/black themed car, but it wouldn't work with my car. Mine needs to stay red(blue/red).
