Me again. My 2009 Accord EX-L V6 now has almost 197,000 miles on it. There’s been a persistent shudder in the front end that has outlasted new struts, new end links and turning the rotors. The service manager at the local Honda dealer says that if it increases when I hit the gas, it’s probably the UV joints. And that’s what it does. So I think it’s time for new half shafts.
Here’s the question. The parts are on Rock Auto for about $50 each.
A DFW area Honda dealer quoted the repair today - with two hours labor - at $1,411.00. Why the heck does the dealer charge over $1,400 to replace parts that cost $100 with only two hours worth of labor?
What am I missing?
