    Hmmm...I'll ask them what they think about how "renewed" that brake fluid is. Thanks so much.

    If you look at the itemized bill, it should say how much brake fluid they added. That might help you know if it got flushed. In fact, if they flushed it, they might actually say so on the bill.

    Good to see your posts jerrym, hope the new knee is doing what it should too.

    In a perfect world, what is done on a car in the shop will be listed on the repair invoice and vice versa what is not on the invoice should not have been done to the car. That is in a perfect world.

    You might be able to hear the pump run for a second or two with the car off by touching the pedal lightly.

    @koco @jerrymil @vvillovv - thanks for the posts. They reminded me to post back - I had called Dynasty earlier today to ask whether or not my Prius got a partial or full brake flush when they had to bleed the brakes as part of the brake booster replacement. Ken confirmed they were entirely flushed, my Prius has completely new brake fluid. And, no, it is not itemized on my invoice. My invoice lists only the part ("abs module") and the labor. ("Abs Module Prius. Remove & Replace."). I keep really good records, so I'll add the "brake fluid flush" into my record book! Thanks again for all of your comments and guidance, guys. It is greatly appreciated!
