Repairing Parking Brake on 02 Toyota Tacoma 4 WD
My parking brake is completely shot on my truck. It needs all cables replaced. I was quoted about $600 by Tires Plus to get this repaired which included all parts and about 3 hours of labor (at $100 per hour). They said the parts cost about $250 from the dealer (which they said they are required to buy from) yet when I look on line, I see similar parts from independent parts dealers for about half that much. I'm not a mechanic so I wouldn't even attempt to fix this myself. This still seems a bit high. Any feedback? Am I getting taken?
it seems fishey tht the line is bad my dad had a car that I fix and the actuator lever was stuck and the car was a 2001 Lincoln town car they might be try to rip you off
Some shops like to purchase (OEM) Original Equipment manufacturer, It cover their liability. The Internet is great for allot of things mainly reviews of companies which I use all the time for everything I purchase. I would do a search and look at the reviews for the shop that you go to. The price for labor is about the going rate in most states and the time for that type of repair is just about right. If you think its to high, purchase the parts on line and go to a local shop and have him price out the repair. The labor is going to be about the same anywhere you go, but you will save on the parts...Good Luck
