Question:

My mechanic just informed me that I need a brake fluid flush and a power steering flush. Do I really need those?

Dear Madison:

This a a topic that is much debated in the industry. Let me just say this and keep it as simple as possible. We have never, ever, ever, ever, in 25 years, (did I say never?) charged anyone for a brake fluid or power steering flush. You may deduce what you will from that.

See photo to sum up my opinion.
