Q: The dealer told me my ignition lock assembly needs replacement. on 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid

They told me it will cost $1000.00 and it will take a month to get the part! Does this sound right? Why so long?

Do you have any other Nissan dealers that you can call just to get a comparison? When they told you $1000.00 , did they give you a break-down of parts and labor or just the total?Maybe there is something very special with their hybrid ignition switch.Also if it takes a month to get it , that tells me that they have quite a few problems with that part.(2008 is not that old), might try to find out if there are any 'service bulletins' relating to it.
