No owner likes to see a big bill like this however this is good for reference to this repair, IF... any other owners have this happen?
Dealer: The only shop who was willing to take on the repair. Their labor rate$ @ 95. to 105. hr. give or take. $1400... 14 hr. total labor.
Part: $600. Factory part installed with warranty. There is a chance it can be had for a cheaper price, IF it is available?
2 days w/o car...
Toll on body... none.
Hit to checkbook/credit card... priceless.
Back on road with that silly grin again.. to the gas station to fill the tank.. with $20. worth... only costs the owner 2 days and 2 grand. What a deal.
The price by the dealer for this repair. Take note, it's not cheap. It never is..
Hang tight brother, eat cheap, be poor for awhile, back to the roadway again looking cool as ever...
