No - not a fair price at all. Do not pay $900.00 for a shift cable replacement - is way too expensive. Be sure to shop around and obtain 2-3 written quotes for the same work.

Best price is to replace the transmission shift cable yourself - save the labor expense.

Try these on-line parts resources; www.autopartsanything.com; www.partsgeek.com; www.Rockauto.com, www.stockwiseauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the replacement transmission shift cable from around $65.00 for your vehicle.

Shift cable = AC DELCO part #21005845 - or it's equivalent
