Curious as to what the price should be for a Brake & Power Steering Fluid Flush / Top Off at 35k and also the cost of a Synthetic Oil Change?

Pricing can vary dramatically from state to state and from city to city. You are going to want to check pricing in your exact area. If possible, call and have all three maintenance procedures priced for your model of vehicle at several shops in your area. You can expect to pay for fluids, plus the shops hourly charge or flat fee for that service. You may not need to top off the brake fluid this early, but it always a good idea to check the level. The power steering fluid service is likely also a little premature, but you should follow your manufacture's recommendations first and foremost. If your owner's manual calls for brake and power steering fluid service at 35,000 miles, then you will want to have it done. For all three services, if they are needed, you are looking at $150+.
