What do you guys think of "dealer recommended" service intervals?
Had a dealer service writer call, here is how the discussion went...
"Your vehicle is due in to have the brake fluid and power steering fluid replaced, what time can I book you for?", she said.
I'm thinking WTF is she talking about? "But my owners manual does not say anything about a requirement for a brake fluid and power steering fluid replacement", I said.
"That won't be mentioned in the generic owners manual, this is a dealer recommended service at 25000 miles (40000 kilometers)", she said.
"What does this cost?", I said.
"About $100 each", she said.
I said, "I will call you back", and hung up.
Now, I know these fluids probably need changing at some point, but what do you guys think of this? It's not overly expensive, but seems like unnecessary service to me.
