Our car is a Sep 07 2.0tdi sportback. it is on variable servicing and required it's first service in May this year at around 18k miles.
Just had a call from the dealer saying that as it is 2 years old it needs the brake fluid changing, do I want to book it in? Estimated cost is £70. I said no because, firstly it seems ridiculous to be on variable servicing, yet still have annual maintenance as well, and secondly we have moved out of the area anyway, so if it really does need doing, it would be at a different dealer anyway.
What do you think? Is this just the dealer trying to drum up extra business, or is there really a need to change the brake fluid? If it really was going to need changing in 4 months time wouldn't/shouldn't they have mentioned it in May?
