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?
After 6 car washes, the exterior trim and Bumpers showed some fading and white marks, like the paint or coloring had faded off.
Anyone having trim issues like this.
