I mean very likely some of those problems don't exist. Mechanics want to charge you for something that you don't need. When top of the engine is leaking oil, it is impossible to say there is oil pan leak, unless you wash whole engine and drive it for several hours. I doubt mechanics did that.
I had "safety courtesy inspection" done by my stealer. They quoted me for replacing NEW flex disk. After inspecting it myself, I figured out they never removed the engine shield to check it.
