If you have a warranty keep records.

Re: Which of the following should be done at the dealer?
All of those "checks" should be done at just about any service center for free with their 21pt inspections, etc. As for the maintenance, none of those listed are difficult at all, but I usually have places bleed/flush my brakes and thanks for reminding me that I need to have them replace my PS fluid too (I hate the Mopar specific fluid...but it's necessary)
