Default The dealership wanted $150 to replace my cabin filter in my engine air filter

I went to the dealership here in Jacksonville last week to have my oil changed and tires rotated which was still $90. They told me I needed to replace my cabin air filter and my engine air filter the cabin filter was going to be $62 and the air filter was going to be 72 installed. I went to Advance Auto bought the air filter for $15 replaced at myself in 30 seconds and then ordered the cabin air filter from RockAuto for $20 got it in two days and replaced it in about 45 seconds. So the way I look at it I saved myself over $100 for about a minute and a half work. Has anyone else experienced the dealership charging this much for such a simple service?

Sounds about right. Genuine Pollen filter would be about $50 + 0.1hrs labour about $12, & Genuine Air Filter is about $60 + 0.1hrs Labour about $12.

Default Not worth it

I picked up a Purolator air filter from Advance Auto and a Wix cabin filter from RockAuto which I'm sure are just as good if not better than the OEM filters. The fact that they would charge that much is beyond comprehension.

It physically takes time to remove & replace the filters & they need to account for the time spent.

0.1hrs per item is a minimal charge. You get nothing for free.
