This past week it tripped a check engine, so I had it looked at today and found out the check engine was the least of my worries.
I was advised the check engine was tripped by it sensing a higher level of alcohol in the gas. I had never heard of this, but they said there was nothing to be done as the check engine had turned off after I had filled it up before taking it to be looked at.
I asked them also to give it an oil change and go back over it again to find anything wrong as I am planning on a trip down south and didn't want any surprises. I did mention that I noticed it was sluggish, didn't get all that great of gas mileage and it rode rough.
The tech who called said they didn't find anything wrong and attributed the sluggishness to the supposed bad gas; though I didn't buy it as it has been sluggish the entire time I had it, but I wouldn't have noticed it on a mere test drive. The tech noted no other issues other than stating the shocks or struts were all bad.
I was quoted $2,250.00 for the front and around $1,800.00 for the rear.
Could this possibly be? He mentioned that they were not hydraulic but rather electronic, thus the price. If that is the case is this the only option for repair or is there a delete option like the ones that had air ride struts, etc?
have the same problem?
