Subject: cost of replacing a timing belt

I would like to know why it would cost $600 to replace a timing belt. I just had mine replaced and the cost was $80.

Labor. Any automotive place will scam you out of your money. Something as simple as a transmission flush being $200 on average? Simple and fast, cost maybe being around $20 max for a car and all you need is fluid, and of course tools (which are inexpensive and a good investment). Timing belt replacement for $200? Trust me when I say, if it's something as simple as an oil change and oil filter change, air filter change, radiator flush, alternator, starter, tranny flush, tranny filter replacement, timing belt, etc., DO IT YOURSELF. You'll thank me in the future.

You could have paid a little more per month and gotten a lower deductible policy. The deductible is the amount you agreed to. To "get out of it" it is breaking the law. You probably thought, like we all do, that nothing will happen to me, so I'll get the cheapest per month. I think that's what most people do, so you're not alone there.  

 

See if you can make  a deal with the repair company; they may let you pay a little per month. The repair shop may be your best best bet in getting some sort of "deal". Nothing illegal, of course.....

 
Next time though, think about paying a little more per month for a little more ins. (One-day less fast food lunch, or movie night, or smart phone, etc) and you can reduce your deductible quite a bit.
 
Hope that last paragraph doesn't sound too judgemental, it's what I'd tell my son or daughter. (Before they bought the crap insurance in the first place, if they'd only ask, right?)  
Too late now though, just live and learn.
