Damn, that's sad. If you look at your bill, did they charge you for any parts, and if so, what parts, and at what cost? It's likely you got nailed for the $200 "C" service, plus parts, plus "shop materials" ( a personal pet peeve of mine), plus your Harmonized sales tax.

You basically paid $400 for an oil change. The rest of it is a visual inspection. I would be stunned if they actually looked at all the things on that list. As an example, the odds of both the front and rear brakes BOTH being at 65% is an indicator that they didn't look at them. Fronts wear quicker than rears. I wouldn't be happy with a % number either. Too easy to fudge. A micrometer measurement would be soooo much better, but in all reality, the tech is never going to do that.

I say you got taken.
