    My 550 is less than 500 miles to its 45,000 mile expense. Does anyone here know what should be done at this time and how much it may cost me?

    Wouldn't the 45k be the same as a 15k? Realistically, I think it should be no more than a fluid flush (oil, possibly brakes depending on when they were done), checking the tensioners, and just making sure everything is sorted. Top off some fluids. Price should be that of a 5k and change?

    I don't recall what the factory spec / write-up for a 15k is.

    yeah, check your book, but it's effectively the same as a 15K.

    two reasons:

    the first is 3.5 years old. the second is 1.3 years old.

    any further questions?

    :)

    the more interesting question might be what your major malfunction is ;)
