Repair costs.......what's reasonable?
Good afternoon all,
I took my car in for a full service a couple of weeks ago (changed all filters, oil etc) at my local indy Alfa garage, which came to £379.09.
While in, they advised that the following needed sorting:
* N/S/R spring broken and needs replacement (both rear would need doing).
* Excessive wear in the steering rack arms and track rod ends, so would require a steering rack rebuild.
* Front discs and pads worn and need replacement.
* two rear tyres need replacement (currently got Bridgestone, but not bothered about downgrading).
With the service, they quoted me £1800 odd!
As you can imagine, this came as a shock, as I wasnt expecting an additional £1400 on top of the service!!
I'm not technically minded, so i'm not sure if this is good or not? (it seemed expensive).
Would anyone be able to give me an idea at what sort of cost I should be looking at? (or if the above was reasonable).
Thanks in advance.
