I took my car in for the passenger light recall and the dealer advised the below issues. The dealer listed these as "failures".
- Power steering fluid level excessively low. The dealer recommends replacing the power steering hose, reservoir pump and intake line.
- The control arm bushings are excessively worn/loose. The dealer recommends alignment and replacing both lower arm bushings
- The rear brake pads are 3mm or less and dealer recommends replacing the rear brake pads.
I had it in for service to my normal mechanic about a month ago. The only issue he noted from above list was the alignment. I needed new tires at the time, so replaced the tires 2 weekends ago.
Current mileage is just over 102K. The service engine light hasn't come on. Brakes were replaced about 2 years ago.
I'm worried now because I'm concerned that issues 1 and 3 weren't noticed by the shop I normally go to. I will drop it off on Monday for the shop to look at and give a second opinion.
