Question about 1999 Toyota RAV4
Have spent $1000 on sensor and $750 on alternator in past 3 months, parts and labor, that sound right?
Sounds extortionate to me. You can expect that for dealer prices perhaps but $750 for an alternator! The alternator itself should cost around $120 to $280 for a remanufactured unit and perhaps one hour or so labor.
It looks like you have been charged much more than 1 hour for fitting. Ask your garage for a breakdown of the work carried out and the price of the parts replaced. They may have fitted an original new part which can cost a lot more.
The price of sensors also varies so find out what they charge exclusive of labor.
