Well, i gotta let this frustration out. I just came back from my dealer TELLING HIM that there was someting wrong with the throttle position sensor and they still charged me for finding the problem i KNEW ($101.95) (if anyone knows, the code P0123). Then after he told me that, he said the job was $298 in total. For a second i though he was going to charge me that AND the insepection. He finally said that the insepction charge will go under as part of the job, so now i have to pay $200. (had to pay $100 up front)
What i dont understand is how the hell does putting in a new throttle position sensor so fuckin expensive! $300 for a stupid computerized piece. BTW, they didnt have the part, so now i have to go bring it in tomorrow (thats when i gotta pay the other $200). i know the throttle is in an awkward place, but still $300?!!
Im guessing the sensor will be no more than.....$100 (<-at dealer....$10 at some parts store), so $200 of labour?
They've gotten to comfy with me....they know its not my car but i still have to pay for repairs (since i drive it everyday)...PLUS, this all happened AFTER a damn tune up which they must have fucked it up themselves cleaning the throttle body. They dont listen to 17 y/o punks...until they end up with a lot of scratched up cars.
Sorry with all the swearing...soo pissed right now. This will be the LAST time going to this dealer unless my A/C acts up again (good ol' $1100 charge).
So much for my plans of putting in an aftermarket sound system for christmas...guess ill have to keep the old factory cd player.
Ps. thatll be me tomorrow AFTER the repairs are done
oh and its all Canadian money
