How accurate are your cost to repair or maintencance cost? on 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe

I'm am experiencing in real life quotes as high as 2-3 times what your website says. Ex. is the 60,000 maintenance. One reputable shop quotes $500. and the dealership was $1,600? Unbelievable differences.

things have changed quite a bit on service quotes. older cars 90's and some up to 2000 had a 60,000 replacement of timing belts and quite a lot of other stuff. the newer cars usually got 90 to 120 thousand miles on each timing belt service, also spark plugs will go 90 to 100,000 miles between changes. the best thing to do is look in your owners manual, see what is required for service for 60,000 to maintain the warranty. at that point you can get online with all data to check times and price parts at the local parts houses.
