Ya I paid like 300 something to get it fixed. They also said my steering wheel fluid was black. I don't know why this was not addressed when I got the car but they also charged me for that.

Warranty repairs are done at a lower hourly-labor rate and at discounted parts prices, AND at fewer hours charged than if the customer pays for the repair.

The place I worked at was charging about $5 more per hour for a "cash" repair, and the parts were significantly more expensive than if it was a warranty repair.

Ford allows a 40% mark-up on parts on warranty repairs.

The place I was at made sure that no customer-pay part was sold for anything less than double the cost, sometimes more than that if misc hardware ...
