When I spoke with my wife after the repair, she expected nothing nearing 100$ for a 17 minute repair. She called and complained, but the employee stated that this was their hourly rate. I was amused by the amount, so I began calling the local auto repair shops that I frequent to get a quote for the same repair. Additionally, I called non-local repair shops to confirm the quotes. My quotes from other repair shops? The highest was 80$, the lowest was 40$ and the median was 55$. Astounding.
RETAIL price of the part online: 12$ (compared with 24$)
Price of disposal for connector and wires: 4$ (recycle much?)
Price for labor: 64$ for 17 minutes=225$ an hour
