I have brought multiple vehicles for inspections, one that had been serviced at a Honda dealer a month earlier, and been told they failed inspection. I've taken the same vehicles elsewhere and they passed. The Honda had never needed power steering fluid, and they wanted $2k for a rack. It's been a year and no fluid on the ground. It's one thing to recommend something, it's another to demand it to pass. Clearly not a safety concern, so shouldn't be failed for that , imho.
