how expensive are most routine repairs
They vary from city to city. I would call different mechanics to find the cheapest estimates.
depends on how old you are, they got my gramma for $1500 on a oil change for a 08 rav-4, horrible . consider the labor cost for a good mechanic app 75$ hr, and parts (look em up) the shops get a discount too remember. answer-$150 and up. Thats why i do my own. im eating good tonight.
