I brought my car in to the dealer for a sqeaky pulley; and they charge $150 just to look at it plus they estimated $1000 to change the power steering pump because it was "leaking". And I had warranty too, but it wasnt covered
Took it to both shops (diagnostic was free btw) and they found nothing wrong. So I dont plan on going back except when I get a new car
And the 200 check point thing(not sure of how much tho) is when they buy a used subaru; subaru checks everything and if there is alot of stuff wrong or worn they dont resell it or they fix it
Wow, thats ridiculous. BTW, why do you go to the dealer?? not a trusted mechanic?
Lol, I see. Thanks
