So, I just got the final quote from my car shop for head gasket job. $2930. That's $1619 in labor and $1056 in parts.
This seems really excessive to me. I was originally given a rough estimate quote of $1800 or $1900 (without tax) and then Friday I get called and told they didn't realize how compact the engine was and how troublesome it'd be to work with so, they redid the quote.
I live in the PNW (Tacoma) - any thoughts on good places I can call?
Interestingly, I called the local dealer and they gave a quote of roughly $2800....... $2600 for labor and $200 for parts. Odd. Really odd.
