I've been told by the dealer my 1996 Deville has the original belts and hoses and the service manager recommended replacement of the belts and hoses. One hose sprang a leak not long after so i parked it. The dealer wants $800.00 to replace the hoses and belts. I not too long ago I dropped $2500 to replace two sensors in the transmission I was afraid of causing damage to the transmission so I had the dealer replace them. No, they did not kiss me first.:mad2: I called a neighborhood garage and they want $70.00 per hose and $125.00 for the belts. My question is how many belts and hoses does my car have? I'm really not wanting to pay his kids college tuitition or fund his retirement. Sheesh!
