90k Maintenance

I called to find out a quote on timing belt and water pump replacement (Ford certified tech at a dealer). I was somewhat shocked...

$800!!!

Is this high in your opinions? I was hoping for ~$600 or less...

Wow, I love Saab's, but not much of a future, dealership-wise...

Regarding the service - does that price the 90k AND the timing/serpentine belt?

If so, it's not TOO much like a rape-like service visit, for a dealership... those $150/hr shop rates scare the HELL outta me!!!

Just for the t-belt, though? That's whacked.

As alex62390 said that seems like a fair price..... but I'm a BMW Tech. so my idea of a good price is totally different. I.E. it's not uncommon for me to price out 5-10k worth of repairs. But 800 isn't to bad if that includes all the parts. Not sure how many hours ford gets to do it but it took me about 2 hours to do. I would probably charge someone 200 plus parts on the side.

That price is reasonable. You are welcome to attempt it on your own if you want to get it done for the least amount of money...
