This is one of the reason I was not willing to provide any costing.
When a vehicle is at a certain age, there are bound to be additional work on normal maintenance services.
For normal services, the things listed according to the work sheet are what the shop should go through and the cost can be upfront but if any of the inspection list components are found to be bad or failing, the shop should let you know and get your approval for replacement. This can run into additional amounts that can be up to hundreds.
What you need to find out is what are the additional work recommended. If it is something that is already bad, you have no choice but to have it replaced. If it is something that is not important, is not bad yet and won't affect safety, maybe you can defer the repair.
