I took my car (Toyota Camry Altise, 2004, 4 cyl) to a local mechanic for a general service. He charged me $682(inc GST) for a general service plus the replacement of a rocker cover gasket and spark plugs.
Was the charge reasonable?
Here is a break down of the cost as per invoice:
Oils/Engine Oil, $50
Labour, $450 ($120 per hour, took the car to the shop at 8:30am and got it back at 12:30 pm on the same day - I guess they worked on it non-stop for almost 4 h?)
Parts, wiper blades, rocker cover gasket, oil filter, air filter, Parker globe x1, for $120.
Please let me know what you think.
