Amen! Not much good news is shared here about dealership service departments. I don't trust or believe them any further than I can throw them and all of their ancestors. $1500 is probably the cheapest quote I've seen here for head gaskets. Sounds like they wouldn't timesert it, or at least they wouldn't do the job properly. Ask for a price guarantee and a 2-year warranty on the job.EcSTSatic said:You're mechanically inclined - I recommend that if you have another set of wheels, do it yourself. That's just me talking. Either way, follow the aforementioned advice. Take your time.
Those guys may be lowballing you or worse, don't know what they are getting in to. If it's a dealership, I'd suspect the former.
