Hi! My 2001 Ford Taurus has been making noise lately under the hood – a grinding sound, and also a clunking sound when I go over potholes/bumps in the road. So I took the car into a repair place today, and they came back with a $1500 estimate!! Does anyone know if the charges below are reasonable?
Remove/replace front struts - 480.14
Front end alignment - 81.65
Remove/replace front sway bar links - 196.47
Remove/replace idler pulley - 83.44
Remove/replace a/c compressor - 403.03
- a/c compressor is working, just has broke clutch
Evacuate & re-charge a/c system - 128.23
Remove/replace inline fuel filter - 62.89
- this was just done in January, so not sure why it would need replacing already!
Any suggestions would be appreciated! I knew things might be expensive, but I didn’t think THIS expensive. Is this reasonable or am I getting ripped off? thanks!!
