2012 CT V6 AWD. About 108k, bought at 60k, dealer has done all servicing since I purchased. They keep saying i should have the valves adjusted, at about $700. Is this necessary, or just a cash grab. My Silverado went 279k with basically nothing but oil changes. Thank you for any advice!

Have you looked into your owners manual? I don't have a 2012 manual in front of me and don't know if it is the same for all years; but your best bet is to follow the owners manual.

My wife and I bought a 2010 Crosstour with 62000 miles last year, and I have asked the Honda service center, where we've had services done, about the valves. All the service manager has said is the noise associated with the valves won't do any damage to them, Honda V6's tend to be noisy, but do it if you wish. In fact, he said I could take it to an independent repair center and pay less. The only service the guy wants to do to our CT is changing the timing belt since they recommend 10 years or 70,000 miles.

I'm currently at 211,000 miles and I was having the spool valve and the valve cover gaskets replaced. Both were leaking quite a bit. According to my advisor at the dealership, the valves hadn't been done in a long time. Since the mechanic was already in there, I supposedly got a bit of a discount. I'll have to look closely at the bill, but between all three things being done, it was around $1100.
