    It depends on the dealership. I personally wouldn't even think of going to a dealership for simple things like oil changes or brake jobs. That said, there are a lot of sleazy oil change shops, so I will add the ever so helpful comment; It depends on the shop.

    Any decent tire and alignment shop can change out your shocks. I wouldn't consider that major work at all. I think I would only go to a dealer for items that require dealer specific tools and expertise, like major engine or transmission work or obviously any warranty work.

    I would agree with @bobeast , depends on the dealership or shop.

    If you have a good history with the dealership, that always helps when fixing things out of warranty.
