  • The squeal noise was the breaks - the pads were worn down and it was the "indicator" that was making the noise. Cost?: $214.13

    Then, hfb - you also get a point - the belts (timing, etc) were dry/cracked and suggested replaced. Cost?: $235.00 (no $0.13 there? ;))

    The exhaust system was "tight" and "clean" and they didn't recommend repair. Phew! I was so thankful that it wasn't the catalytic converter. They weren't able to reproduce the rattling noise, so hopefully that means it's gone away (ha ha). We'll see after we get the other noise eliminated.


    • They want to charge you $200+ to replace BRAKE PADS? If so, RUN as fast as you can to a local mechanic. Dealerships are great for warranty work, but they are just too darn expensive for routine things like brakes.

      And I bet you can get a better deal on the belts. How many miles are on the car anyway?
