I've been an automotive mechanic, auto teacher and automotive forensic investigator in Ontario for 35 years. The above article is nothing more than a self serving industry fake advice puff piece and should not be relied on as good advice, it is not. Take for example the common advice accepted as normal by the author Brian Turner, "cleaning and lubricating disc brake slider" If Brian Turner wanted to give you good advice he should have said customers need to ask and be shown proof that the manufacturer actually recommends doing it, in most cases they cannot and it is simply a great example of unnecessary work. He should have also told you that if your car is under warranty and you have an unusual brake problem that it is of course a free repair. I have read hundreds of owner's maintence manuals and never do they mention that the owner do this to keep the car maintained. Mechanics never tell you the risks of working on complex systems the same way doctors tell patients before a surgery and they should, given they make mistakes at the same rate as anyone else. In a lot of cases your are safer not to have them touch it at all. If you went to court over this the judge would laugh at it if it wasn't listed by the manufacturer in their maintence section of your vehicle's manual since the people who designed and built the car no far more about it than a mechanic at a dealer ever will.
