The problem is that the shop charges is based on what they call "book rate". It's an actual labor guide that determines how long a job takes. They are not supposed to "add" hours if they go over the amount of hours allowed to do a particular job. Based on this labor guide, the shop will multiply the amount of hours a job SHOULD take by the shop's labor rate and this is the amount billed to a customer. For example, if a water pump replacement shows in the labor guide takes 2.0 hours, multiply by $75.00(this would be the shop's labor hourly rate) the amount for labor billed to customer is $150.00. Do some shopping around and you'll find out who would have the most reasonable shop rate for your particular job.

I have a 2004 Audi A6 wagon that has only 35,000 miles. While the recommended number of miles is 75,000, the dealer is recommending a change of belt as the age of the car is over six years. The cost is...

On the user's manual it normally states the mileage you need to have it replaced and the number of years whichever comes first. Consult your manual for the years. If the manual is consistent with the mechanic then it is recommended to have it replaced. This is a crucial part of the engine which is the reason I as well recommend it to be replaced.

2001 Chevy Prizm, only 35,000 miles - radiator hoses; drive belt

At 35,000 miles, no, I wouldn't worry about the hoses, or the belt. I have a 150,000 miles on my vehicle, and never changed either one.

2007 range rover check engine light is on! 35,000 miles

Take it to a Shucks auto supply and have them read the code for free before you take it the the dealer and pay large fee. The typical check engine light code comes on when and with that low of miles might be, just not tighten the gas cap enough. Make sure you hear the gas cap click at least 3 times after filling up. It might be that simple, it may take another 100 miles or so but it possibly will clear the code on its own. That's all mine was. When they read the code and they say its fuel related, good chance that it is. FYI, I'm sure your also always using super unleaded and not going to Arco for gas right?? Good Luck.

I have a 2008 Avenger, we have had it for 16 months, it should have 15,000 miles,the digital odometer shows 35,000 miles,had it to 3 dealers, they can't find a problem?

Are you sure this is a US spec car or was it a canadian car that the dash is in km instead of miles. Another posibility is that the instrument cluster has been replaced with one out of another car. Newer clusters must be replaced with new units and programed for that particular vehicle. Hope this helps.

Good price-
Pay $20 and have a mechanic go take a look at the car- if you have a good mechanic, they will gladly go (for compensation of course) and give you an estimate based on a looksee and the comments of the dealer.

Than you can access the total price and value to determine if it suits you.

Besides cash, you can also tell the mechanic that you'll use him exclusively for service in the future.
