Mechanics quoted repair price came to $840. I bought a used replacement part for $45 and had them install it for $240. That means they were trying to charge me $600 for a brand new Honda part (which is definitely not the cost) and were not willing to find me a used part at a significant discount. I've been told Dinkins folks are the most honest around, but this definitely cast significant doubt for me and my friends moving forward.
