2008 Mazda CX-9 QuestionsWhy are "shop charges" not included in an estimate? & what are they exactly? (1 answer)
Itemized estimate for transmission that includes detail like: parts, labor, teardown, fluids, core, seals, ect. Then states at the bottom does NOT include shop charges and taxes.... What are these vague shop charges? & why not list the estimated shop costs in the estimate?
with labor I was told it would cost 1500.00$. That seems too high to me.
There was a weird sound in the passenger side exhaust everytime i turned left and then start hearing sound of leaking water. Now the AC has completely stopped working. what could be wrong?
