I called Saturday and first they couldn't even find the car on their lot.
Anyway, they checked it out, even though I told them to ONLY replace the hose.
All told, a 10 minute job. Overall cost: $358.00!!!!
Here is their rip off price breakdown.
Labor (??): 223
The hose only cost like $20. I can assume the mark up, 5 times is a bit much, and over $200 labor to unscrew two hose clamps and install a hose in an easy access location?
This is robbery and to me, very unethical behavior and business practices.
I won't be going back there ever again, let alone, purchasing a car from Southwest Ford.
I would have assumed a high cost of around $150 but $200 on top of that is just unforgiveable.
Next time, I will have the car towed to my house.
