Radiator Replaced
Amount: $560.00

Auto Shop: Super Tech Service Center
Radiator- $205 %60 markup (should be about $125)
Thermostat- $24 %90 to %100 markup (should be $12)
Lower Hose- $28.50 %63 markup (should be $16)
Antifreeze- $30 %250 markup (should be about $12)
Labor- $225
The only positive thing is they started working on my car right away and I got it back the same day. I need my car so the extra money is worth it, I guess. Just hate getting screwed on the markup of the parts and I don't know enough about what certain parts should actually cost. They always got me by the balls (so to speak)....

Replaced Radiator
Amount: $150.00

Auto Shop: All Florida Radiators FL
I recently had to get my radiator replaced since it had a crack and all the anti freeze leaked out. I took it to a local shop where they took great care of it. It was only $150 total for both parts and labor. Plus it came with a 1 year 30day labor warranty. I think I lucked out finding this place because I called other local places and I got quotes ranging from 300+ My best advice would be call as much mechanic shops possible to compare pricing. Usually dealerships are pricey but if you can find a "mom and pop shop" (Family or privately owned business) you will get a much better deal.

Charged $462 for radiator and 3 hrs of labor at $105/hr and $20.00 for coolant. Radiator was not genuine Suzuki radiator. Manufacture radiator cost $668 and I only have a 6 month warranty. Feel stupid because online prices are $120-229 for radiator.

Auto Shop: Mobile Tuneup Mechanic
4 Cylinder 2000 Camry was slowly bleeding fluid out of some 3 inch cracks at the very top of the radiator. Replaced with $75 CryoMax radiator made in Taiwan (pick-up cash price) from Hu at Radiator Depot, (858) 292-4998, 7030 Convoy Ct, San Diego 92111, same one that 1-800-Radiator sells for over $150 delivered. My Mobile Tuneup mechanic did all the work in my driveway in under an hour and charged me just $85. Plus about $5 for the Peak 50/50 antifreeze from Walmart and another $2.25 for a couple of radiator hose clamps from Kragen.

If your car overheats DO NOT use this shop. We spent over $400.00 on repairs in April and another $383.00 in October and once again hoses are leaking and coolant is gushing. These people are incompetent and refuse to take any responsibility for the recurring problem. After seeing the average costs for full system replacement, we feel really used (and a bit stupid for not doing our homework).

Ted does a great job and always charges what is fair. I used to go to the Dodge dealership but I kept feeling like I was being jipped. I took my moms to the dealership for a diagnostic and they wanted 1200 for all of the work. I then took it to ted for a second opinion and he said they were crazy and told me I only needed breaks! He does great work and does it at a fair price. he had my car for about 2 weeks but there were extenuating circumstances that I understood and could not be helped. By the way, I learned condensation..or what I like to think is condensation is never a good thing

Price included parts labor and tax. Labor at $104/hr which is more compared to most places. Quality work well done. Flushed twice to get contaminants out of heater core and engine. Replaced radiator cap, thermostat and radiator w/an after-market version. Added coolant, prestone, and three flush kits. My radiator was very dirty they said and had a leak somewhere. All parts & labor had one year warranty if I come back with a problem. Now the heat and A/C works quickly, under 10 mins. Woopee!!
