Not giving any type of legal advice ;) but you need to read what is covered under your warranty. I don't believe that anything is covered that constitutes as tune-up or under normal maint. unless they gave you one of the oil change or tires for life deals. Sorry but check into it. You may not need all those parts but if you buy a scanner you can check most of it yourself plus changing the plugs and wires isn't that hard even if you have a V10. Also everyone knows that if you take a vehicle to a dealer for a tune-up you're going to pay what the dealer hourly rate is ..... just a suggestion if you want to have someone do the tune-up for you take it to a small garage their hourly rate will most likely be half of what a dealer is. Plus they don't have the mark-up cost on parts as much as what a dealer does.
