Q: Confusion over cost..what is fair and appropriate? on 2003 Chevrolet Express 1500

Auto Express reported a leak when we had the oil changed. It is a small leak that we saw on our garage floor but the estimate from a Scotts Valley shop is $660.00 which includes $99.00 for belts. I've been told by two people that it should be closer to $250.00 but the shop where we received the $660. estimate said they can't use after market parts and the GM parts are more expensive. I'm not sure what the truth is!
