I had my 2000 Subaru Outback in for its 90,000 mile tune-up on 7/31/11. As part of the service, they wrote on the work order “…replace coolant, brake fluid.” They also told me that I needed to change my front brakes.
The next weekend, I replaced my brakes, and flushed my brake lines and got filthy brake fluid. In the picture, you can see the “7-day-old” brake fluid in the bottle, and the new brake fluid in the plastic tube.
How do I confront the mechanic about the fact he charged me for something that wasn’t done? What do I do if he won’t acknowledge that he tried to cheat me? There isn’t much money on the line, but my blood is boiling.
P.S. Please ignore the hat…it was really hot, and I don’t have a garage to stay out of the sun.
