Assume this was a dealership? Do you have another nearby? Have you checked independent mechanics? You can have them do what is in the Owner's Manual.

All those inspect and replace if necessary, the cost of the replacement parts, if needed likely aren't included in that $920 quote, they would add that to the cost when you picked it up. Perhaps they are assuming to replace everything on the list. Eitherway, you want to understand exactly what they are going to do and what is the cost and the potential costs. They should provide you an itemized list.
