Nowhere did it say that we didn’t know that GM charges their own prices LOL. Take your golf and AIDS somewhere else . You can skew the conversation however you’d like LOL, but this is just a funny topic and is meant for a joke.
We run a business, too. We aren’t stupid. However, $55 for an air filter is robbery. I get that GM controls the price. And charging that much for labor on a two minute install is laughable. Didn’t mean for it to be taken so personal, just wanted a quick laugh at an extremely high priced item for a two min install. GM does pay for warranty work.. at least according to my dealership, they do.
Received the standard “our technicians recommend replacing you cabin air filter, so I can get that swapped for you for $55(!!).” Definitely said no and purchased one off Amazon for $9.. but wow do they have some good markups.
Well, I think the lesson that I have learned here is to call as many shops as possible. I have called about five, and wow what a difference in price. The best shop has offered to order the shocks, install, and align for $579. I have called other shops that have wanted me to order the shocks and have them install and align for $470... so almost double the price when buying the parts. Crazy.
I have an opportunity to get a take off set of Ranchos for pretty cheap. I know Billstein 5100s are the gold standard here, but how are the Ranchos compared to the standard black shocks? Any better?
