Need good Toyota mechanic - tricities area

My Moms' '97 Rav4 is in need of a good, basic tune-up. As I live in a condo, any kind of wrenching underground in the lot is prohibited so I need a to take it to a good, reasonable shop that won't rape me as a dealer would....basics like plugs, cap and rotor (?) - wires, air and fuel filter.

Does anybody have any reco's in the tri-cities area that can tend to this?
Much thanx if so.

Can you hear me now? ...NO?! $#%&@!!

Thats all basic stuff that is border line wrenching. I dont think they would hassle if you were just changing plugs, dizzy cap and rotor and air filter. Just dont make a mess and clean up thoroughly before you finish.

I think, i may be wrong but what they really dont want is people doing oil changes or fuel filter changes because fluids could get on the ground and stain.

So maybe do the basics and then take it to a shop for the fluid changes. First shop that i trust and comes to mind is RacingGreed. They are in port coquitlam on broadway.
