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.

    There is much to know about Auckland mechanics. they are charging huge price for just brakes fluid flush and even for oiling. As a customer we should be aware about them now.
