Dealer is for warranty work only
The only time I bring a car to a dealer is for warranty work. In 50+ years of buying cars from Chevies to Jags to BMWs to MBs I have never returned to a dealer for suggested A, B or any other service where all they do is "check" a lot of items which any owner should be able to do.
My rule of thumb is to change the oil, filter, air filter, fuel filter, cabin filter, on a regular basis, check fluids often, and fix(or have fixed) anything that goes wrong when it goes wrong. I use independent garages for auto repairs unless the problem is something that only a dealer can solve....rare situation.
