So we’re going on a longish road trip, and I took my car to a chain oil-change place in advance of doing so. All fine, except they said “Your brake fluid is low. Better take it to a brake specialist and have them make sure there’s no leak or anything, and then top it off”. Oops! Brake repairs are one of those things I do not mess around with (and in fact I had brake work on the car just 5 months ago).
No time before the trip to get it to the dealership who did the brake work. No time to take it anywhere, really. But I happened to have about an hour to kill this morning, and there happened to be a Midas Muffler and Brake shop about 5 minutes away.
Not only did they agree to take a quick look at it right away (I told them if real repairs were needed we’d have to bring it the next day)… 30 minutes later they called me and said “It’s fine - the fluid was just low”. So I went back to settle up. They had topped off the fluid.
And they REFUSED TO CHARGE ME A PENNY. So I’ll fix 'em, - I’ll tell EVERYONE.
