220,000 mile 2010 sedan, AT... maintenance?

tl;dr: What is the BEST online reference for a Yaris maintenance schedule, perhaps including "frequent mistakes"?

I'm tired of mechanics/dealerships warning me that this or that needs to be flushed or changed or replaced, only to have the next guy say I am a fool, and so on and so forth.

I'm just a gal who commutes, A LOT. I need a list I can trust implicitly and I know this forum is where to find it. I just can't find it!

Thank you all so much. :)

Start with the schedule in your owners manual. If a mechanic suggests something not in there, don't do it.

You can always consult the list if you get a recommendation to have some suspicious work done by a mechanic.

Not for normal operation, no.

Change it for severe operation in hot or cold weather.

OK, did some deep digging. I would like to know what you think of what I've come up with for my planned major service appointment.

LAST MAJOR SERVICE @ 159,000 miles:
- 30,000 mile service
- "world standard transmission fluid exchange"
- "fuel induction service" (I now know this is a waste)
Plugs were replaced @ 132,000 miles.


PLANNED APPOINTMENT NOW @ 220,000 miles - *updated to add proposed cost per the dealership*:
- 60,000 mile service exactly as outlined in the Yaris manual*
- $67.99. I will really have to make sure they are covering all of the bullet points in the Yaris maintenance manual, because their quoted service doesn't include coolant replacement.

- transmission fluid drain/replace; will make sure to turn down any offer of a flush (EDIT:I checked fluid and it seems fine, but I may follow some found advice to drain and replace roughly every 50,000 miles)
- $105 to $110

- coolant drain/replace: will make sure to turn down any offer of a flush
- $85. this is supposed to be included in the 60,000 miles service, but isn't.


Situation:
- EDIT: transmission checked out fine by me, based on this thread: http://www.yarisworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36538
- I put almost 40K miles a year on my Yaris, most of which is 65-85mph highway driving.
- There is some exhaust noise which I'll have checked, but otherwise I get a smooth ride with no issues.
- I'll be taking it to a dealership; I have a recall to have done anyway, and I thought this would be good practice to question what they might tell me I need this time instead of just feeling like an ignorant dummy
* I can replace the air filter myself


Thanks in advance for your opinions, everyone :)

It is only suggested that it be inspected every 30,000 miles in the manual.
