Well, my truck went to the dealer last night, was just going to have an inspection and oil change and stuff, which I will probably do from now on, but it is nice to have them look at things I would never look at.
We had them look at
Fluid Levels (I could have done & did)
Backup Lights (didn't work)
Power Mirrors (kinda sorta didn't work, i'll explain)
and a Door Sensor (which thought a door was open when it wasn't)
So we get the call today, The front rotors need to be replaced, that is what was causing the grabbing. Ok...
Backup light bulbs where burnt out. Ok... (Figured it would be wiring, since there are some exposed wires in the bed)
Power mirrors, they wanted $900 to replace the motors and switch. No way, I can buy the exact same mirrors for $260, and a switch can't be that much, and they still work the old fashioned way.
Door sensor they wanted $600 for a new security module. To be honest, a light on the dash dosn't bug me that much, so that can be put on hold.
And they found that I needed new Upper and Lower front ball joints.
Asked my grandpa (car guy) figured we could wait but why not do it now.
So after all the diagnostics charges, the total is $2,566 and it will be done tomorrow.
Now that seems like allot of money, but then you go back, the truck was originally listed at $10,995. The dealer reduced it to $9,995, and we negotiated it down to $9,195. (with tax & licensing it was $9,995 total)
$9,195 + $2,566 = $11,761
But anyway, none of you probably cared about any of that ^ but still... If you look at what it was originally priced for, we got it down because of these minor problems, and after fixing um, it wasn't that much more then it was originally.
