I have a small car with a hydraulic clutch. This system is tied to the brake hydraulic system (they only share the reservoir and master cylinder, from there the systems split) . So when I found out there was leak in the system I was told that the dealership would be the best place to find the leak. I paid $45 for them to find this leak and they didn't do it. Thankfully I didn't have an additional $650 for them also to repair something that wasn't broken. They said it was the master cylinder that was leaking and it was going down the rod to the brake booster, both parts needed to be replaced. Although this is not an uncommon issue, I was having trouble with the clutch half of the system and no trouble with the brakes. I start looking for a second opinion. Before I could get one the clutch was completely gone, no pressure, no shifting gears or even getting it in gear. The slave cylinder is what was leaking and it had just completely given out. I went from having about a tablespoon of brake fluid in the drum holding the clutch and slave cylinder to the entire reservoir being emptied in there and leaking out from the seam. That much brake fluid ruins the plate and the whole thing then has to be replaced. My work went from being a $60 part plus labor to being $2200. I called the dealership to speak with them about how much their error had cost me and the response I got was a very apathetic "okay." So with "mechanics" that know what they are doing and poor customer service, I would advise making some calls and finding someone else to work on your car.
Service was great, very helpful.
Easiest car buying experience ever. I was in and out in an hour with my new car.
I want to thank Chris for helping Joseph get a vehicle. He loves it. I appreciate his help.
