Re: Timing Belt Replacement (Copeland)

haha nope!<p>Consumer guides calls for:<p>Timing Chain or Belt $245<p>which includes the parts and labor (assuming a $50/hour rate, which will most likely be higher)

Re: (Copeland)

my advice is you talk to other volvo owners in your area and find out who they take theirs to. find someone reliable who won't screw you on price.<p>

Re: (Copeland)

the only other suggestion i could make is to call a local used car dealer that might specialize in volvos and find out where they take their cars to have them serviced.<p>best of luck.

Ok, I just called 3 other shops in SA about the timing belt. Quoted $950, $790, and the other guy lol told me he needs to see my engines serial number to give me a quote, which was after I asked him if they work on "p2's" and he said what is that <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> I told him 2 other shops just gave me a quote without my serial number lol and he yelled "fine" and hung up on me lol <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
