I know right, I got home and did some pricing online, I was like what the ****, I understand they are in business to make money but Come onFrom a quick glance that's like A 100-150% markup on parts. Definitely steep imo.
Edit: nearly 200% in some cases. **** that; that's highway roberry.
I live in Munster, In, place is Munster marathon they have a guy there that specializes in VolvoJust out of curiosity, which shop gave you that quote? There's a shop in Villa Park called A&R that specializes in Volvo, and they so grossly overprice parts and labor it's ridiculous. And they refused to install parts that I brought in, because they said "they couldn't guarantee them" even though they were blue box Volvo parts. Ridiculous.
I've been searching all morning and all I can find is people saying there are tricks, but no link or info on the actual tricks. Would you mind telling me about this? Looks like I'm needing to change my PCV system. IPD has a sale on their own aftermarket hose but it's out of stock, I can't wait three weeks to get my car back on the road.Also there are tricks allowing you to not have to buy the large, very expensive tube and some dealers know this, yet they don't even offer this alternate way to help out a customer
