I assume there was some paperwork involved in all of this? If so, all good mechanics/repair shops will have their labor/diagnostics charges listed. Check it out. Now if you went to him and said "I need my alternator replaced", then he did what you asked and has a right to collect his labor costs. If you went and said "I have a problem with my charging system, can you check it out for me?" he should have been up front and told you what the diagnostic/labor charge was going to be. If he didn't then that's a problem. especially if you signed a work order. And if you did, take what you got and be glad he didn't bill you $1000. Cause you won't win that battle in court.

"If you don't know what you're looking for it's kind of hard to find it!"

If it helps America through it's current crisis, I say go ahead! We can take it, after all we're Canadian!

Blame Canada!!
