I stay far away from dealers, unless there are parts that I need that can't be purchased from the automotive stores, or can't be repaired by the local independent shops. My wife got recommendation from dealers that are utterly useless, as tactics to scare the crap out of her to get certain oddball jobs done that didn't need to. She always referred things back to me, as she told them to hold on, and placed me on the cell's speaker. Didn't hear anything from them after I responded to their recommendation for the past years.
As nooby said, 60 to 80k miles. Me, since we performed light to moderate towing from time to time, I cranked mind down to 45k miles. If I feel like being lazy, I would bump it to 55k miles, as max, on tranny, differential, and coolant as the trio. ~$300 out the door, but this practice had kept all our towing vehicles in good shape for the past 4 decades.
Cherish your T'reg, and keep her/him nice and maintained. Don't skip out on the pampering, or you'll get one major backlash later down the road. Your T'reg is like high maintenance woman, that will work hard for you. Treat her/him right, and she'll/he'll you right.
When life offers you a blessed world to explorer, why stay home and see the adventures through others' eyes.
