Auto Repairs are Unavoidable.
Eventually, something will break, wear out or fail on every car. Parts that most often wear out include brakes, tires, mufflers, batteries, filters, alternators, starters, water pumps, belts and hoses. The higher the mileage, the more repairs your car tends to need.
Nothing lasts forever, so when your vehicle needs repairs you obviously want to know how much it is going to cost -- hopefully BEFORE the work begins.
Repair Labor Rates.
Labor is pricey, and time is money.
Auto repair can be difficult, dirty, back-breaking work that requires a lot of training, skill and experience, and a lot of expensive tools and equipment. The average technician has over $20,000 invested in his tools, and the shop where he works may own thousands of dollars of service equipment. Much of the hourly labor rate you pay goes to shop overhead (things like rent, utilities, equipment purchases & maintenance, employee benefits, etc.) and profit (which every business needs to say in business otherwise they go out of business).
You should get an estimate that lists what parts need to be replaced, the labor charge to replace those parts, any charges for diagnostic time, and any additional charges for miscellaneous items such as shop supplies, hazardous waste disposal fees, etc.
There is a great site you can go to, for a ball park estimate on auto repair.
www.repairpal.com. I have found it to be not 100%, but fairly accurate. Remember to keep in mind, it is often difficult to say exactly how much a repair will actually end up costing you until the job is underway or finished. Problems can happen anytime (rusty or broken bolts), or additional parts that also need to be replaced, and the labor may end up being more than the original estimate. So keep these things in mind when using an online repair estimator.
