I have a 2002 Kia Sedona Mini van at 175000 and have been told that my leaking fluid is coming from the rack and pinon on the van. I got a quote from the dealership of a little over $600 for full replacment including labor. I was wondering in replacing an item like that is it:
- Best to go with new over a used part?
- How difficult is this to do?
- What is a fair/avg cost to replace this item.
My goal is to keep the van for about another 25,000 miles before trading it in, so which is why I was wondering if going used my be a better choice and given the price the dealership is wanting, can this be done by a general mechanic?
