I have an 03 Sebring Convertible, bought at 27,000 miles, which went into the shop yesterday for its PA inspection and routine 63,000 mile service. It is a car which has *hit wood* never required anything beyond routine maintenance, and was serviced entirely at the dealership where I bought it since I bought it. I just moved between states, and despite the major service performed at the old dealership at 60,000 miles, the place I went to managed to find over $300 of recommended work:

Replace the Brake Fluid
Replace the Power Steering Fluid
Clean the Throttle Body

None of this is recommended in the owners manual, and being in a new town trust has not yet been established, so I naturally declined and decided to get second opinions.

Under what circumstances are those services necessary?
Under what circumstances are those services desirable?

Many thanks for your help!
