Good Job John. I'm enjoying your wet weather here in Midlothian.

If you are running with an automatic it is a good idea to do a filter and fluid change. Manual transmission just a fluid change.

Update to issues since the Maintenance. The day I picked up the car, the air-conditioner did not work. They called later in the day with a song and dance, etc. It worked when I brought it in so after arguing with the service manager they replaced the radiator fan. Picked it up the next day and the air worked fine. The ride home is only about 3 miles. I did not drive again for four days when I had to drive into work. (13 miles) Well, the car overheated to and from work. I had to run the heater to keep the temp in a safe range. When I got home I called and talked to the owner of the dealership. After explaining all that had happened and they had their hands on the cooling system/etc, he said they would address the issue. Apparently they damaged the radiator when installing the new fan assembly. New radiator was installed and all appears to now be working ok.
Needless to say, I will not be taking my wife's PT there when it is due for the same type maintenance.

I'm glad to read that you got it taken care of.
