Website Provides Information On Repair Costs

I just came across a new website that attempts to provide estimates for various repairs on many makes of cars - both parts and labor. - RepairPal

The site provides ranges of costs for a given repair - for example, the range provided for replacement of a Mass Air Flow Sensor on my '05 S500 was from $191 to $1053 - a huge variance. The estimate page also provided tips on items that should be checked along with the replacement (such as certain connectors that, if bad, would obviate the need to replace the MAF at all).

The site does not have information on repair or service for many items yet (it was only initiated on June 14); for example, while it addresses suspension, there was no information related to either Airmatic or ABC components; nothing on Mercedes electronics (COMAND, Audio units, nav, CDC replacement, etc.); and it did not address "A" and "B" service, only some components of each.

Still, if we let the site know what information we need for our Benzes, it could become a valuable tool to avoid being ripped off.

Thanks for the info Skylaw, I just joined. I sent them some feedback because one of my cars was not listed. I think they show a lot of potential.

Yet another valuable tool, usually available at public and university libraries . . . having the Mitchell Guide pages for your particular car.
