Car is at 30,000 Miles.
They are recommending the following maintenance. Please guide me if it is making sense or not ?

1) TRANSMISSION SERVICE
2) FULE INJECTION SERVICE
3) THROTTLE BODY SERVICE
4) ALIGNMENT

Cost to do all this is around $800.

Thank you in advance! :)

CVT is definitely @ 30k for trans fluid change. The rest seems like preventive.

Hi , thank you for your response. My car model year is 2018 EXL , 1.5L engine /CTV. Maintenance minder is A1. Others are recommended by delarship service center.

@Hondafan777 Is right about the transmission service at that point. I wouldn't shy away from the fuel/intake services on these cars. Direct Injection engines are going to have carbon build up on the valves just due to the nature of not having fuel to wash over the tops of them the way it does in a port injected system. The throttle body service is preventative but the fuel injection service is worth doing fairly regularly. Don't bother with an alignment if you're not having any issues with the car drifting or pulling, that's just them looking for something else to get you for.

Hello Fired00d, thanks for response. Maintenance minder is showing only A1 service. Others are just recommended by delarship service center.
As @Hondafan777 & @Mr.2.g0 have already stated the transmission service should be done (the cheat sheets I referenced in previous post state the CVT tranny fluid should be changed at 25k). I would inquire how they are/will be doing the fuel injection service. When my car will need this service I'm going with BG Platinum® Fuel System Service (which will include cleaning of the throttle body). I'm familiar with BG products and have had this type of service done on a motorcycle I own. This service doesn't have to be done by a dealership (you can search on BG site for shops in your area).

You'll probably get a better deal or at least a better service elsewhere. I bought my car with 50k miles and did my BG services at the shop I work at with like 53k miles on it. We cleaned up my TB and ran their cleaners through the intake and fuel tank, made a pretty noticeable improvement. The TB cleaning isn't as crucial as the rest but it helps.
