My power steering is leaking fluid. Really leaking. Took it to a shop and they said one hose $130, the other hose $186, but total bill estimate $925. Any thoughts?

Asked by Oct 20, 2014 at 07:32 PM about the 2007 Kia Rio

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I picked up the car. I just keep adding fluid so I can drive it on a limted basis. But they
charged me $70 to get my car back. I feel this is crazy. I did get the proposal and plan on
giving it to another shop on Wed, but I would like to go in with a little more knowledge.
And yes, I am a single mom....fish bait!

I would take it to another shop and get a 2 nd estimate that price seems high to me

86,565

That sounds like they are using dealer pricing for parts and labor, your right it does seem high. I don' t know where you are located but it shouldn't have taken more than a half hour to diagnosis this problem, out here that would have cost you about 37.50 at most independent shops.

power stearing hose is cheap u got two of them high pressure and low low pressure is just rubber hose sold by tge foot ten bucks mabey the high pressure is meatal line witch is around 30 or 50 dollars labor on that couldent be more than a hour there bullsh@ting you sorry to say also dealers are the worst place to take your car unless its under warranty
