Paid too much?
Had a local garage check brakes all around on my 2011 Toyota Tundra (Double Cab 4x4)..in the process they told me the rear wheel bearings were bad.
When I got the bill I was comfortable with the cost and labor on the brakes...but, the rear wheel bearings seemed overly expensive.
Bearing Kit 574.54, 2ea. wheel bearings at 379.28 each, axle retainers 84.34 total, oil seal 41.88, 106 lube and silicone for differential.
What is a bearing kit?
Anyway, while it was in the shop they damaged the driver's door and ended up having to paint both driver's side doors to color match the rest of the paint. $900.00 out of their pocket, but I think I was overcharged on the parts to pay for their damage.
There was only 73,000 miles on my pickup at the time.
Reader's thoughts on the charges?
