That sounds really steep to me. Id ask them how they are justifying it. I have replaced a Highlander HV inverter before and It only paid about 4 hours, its not difficult at all. Yes, I am Toyota hybrid Certified.

2012 Chevy volt service high voltage system 12 volt battery keeps dying.I took it to dealership and they think it's the hybrid battery for 12000 dollars to replace does that sound right.

First is to determine if there is a spurious current leak from the 12 v system. measure the current out of it with a good meter and turn everything off if not already. Start pulling fuses until the source is found and trace that circuit for the issue. The 12V charges from the high volt system if its anything like out Toyota Hybrid. And if it were the HV battery, then charging the 12V one so that you could start should expose a HV battery that shows significant drain from sitting. Does it? Did they verify the inverter (Charges the 12V) is working properly? Think of it as an alternator for hybrids.

How much does it cost to replace the valve body on a 2005 toyota corolla?

Labor time is 3 hours so whatever the shop charges per hour times 3. I would say between $120.00 (that's what I charge) up to $300.00 (that's probably about what the dealership charges.

I can change the time on radio clock but it just stays on that time

I had this problem after a main dealer repair that required the battery to be disconnected for a couple of hours. I put i right by leaving the battery disconnected for 12 hours until all the memory including radio presets had cleared. After reconnecting it returned to normal. I t may take yours longer or less time but the radio presets clearing seems to indicate it will restore the clock.

I have a 2001 Toyota Highlander with 128,000 miles. It has started using oil on highway miles. When driving on a 12 hour trip, we had to add oil 3 times. I have always taken the vehicle to the Toyota...

have your dealer inspect it for leaks, with this kind of mileage your valve cover gaskets, oil pan sealer and seals start to develop leaks, also try to use a good quality oil because areation is worst with cheap oils,

I have just been charged $159.60 for a fuel filter for 2007 Toyota Corolla. Is this justified

the dealer will mark up the product about 300 times the cost. I'm sorry to tell you. Yes, they will charge that much. An auto parts store would have sold it to you at one third the price. I'm so sorry I could not do that job for you. Would have charged a cup of coffee and the part. the dealership makes the money to stay in business off of the parts and labor, not by selling cars. I know 2 owners of car dealerships here in New Orleans. I won't take my car there to get fixed. Please, next time ask your friends about their mechanic, and then talk to them before any work is done.

How many hours should a shop charge to replace a starter on an Excursion with V-10 gas engine ?

It should not take more than 1 hour. If you are talking about a ford dealership , they have a book that tells them how many hours to charge for each job. If the book says 3 , thats what they charge you , even if it only took 40 min. I did a 2.5 hour job in 30 min once , in my driveway , laying in the dirt.
Avoid dealerships unless it is free warranty work.

98 Saab convertible motor needs installation- I was informed it needs to be done at a dealership

for a 1998 vehicle? it's not still under warranty is it? the main reason to take your vehicle to the dealership in my opinion is that you still have a warranty and you don't want to void it. where i live the local dealership charges $95 hour. to me that would be a good reason to not go there. i would look in the phone book where you live and find some shops that are listed under automotive electrical and tell them what you have. i would be really surprised if one of them can't help you. these shops aren't cheap, probably charge more for their time then general service shops, but all they do is electrical and they are really good at it. what is likely to happen if you take a ten year old car to the dealership is that the dealership will have their used car guys work on it. the new car guys have to learn new stuff all the time so they usually only go five years out. hope that helps.
