I recently had a few things done on my car, and was told I had no power steering fluid in my car. They charged me $69.99 to replace the power steering fluid. I didn't notice this until I got home because I had a number of things done. I called the mechanic and he said it's because they flush the system before they add the fluid. Is this charge too high?
What is cost to replace power steering fluid? on 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

That price was fair as it sounds like he charged 1/2 hour labor plus fluid

Thanks for the info. I kind of like the place I went to. They're quick and filled me in on what needed to be done and why. Really didn't look over the itemization until I got home. It's hard being a woman and not really knowing what's needed and the reasonable rate.

well...power steering fluid costs about $4.99 per bottle and a bottle is enough to fill it up..but a flush costs about $30 plus labor so yea..
