Can that estimate even be close for such a simple 2hr repair? I would never charge that much for labor, and can you not buy the parts $100 cheaper like everything else at a discount autoparts store where the parts are exactly the same just a different name on them?
is that estimate even close to being right? on 2007 Mazda CX-9
Don't know, you never mention what the repair is, what the part is, or even what the estimate was! We need a little more info than "simple 2hr repair". If it takes 2 hours it sounds a little more involved than simple.
depends on what service your having done, i personally pull my parts if possible and buy from oreillys and autozone and save a ton of money
