2008 Saturn: that the ignition coil pack is defective..Astra

Resolved Question:

I was told that the ignition coil pack is defective on my 2008 Saturn Astra, and that it will cost 1100 dollars to repair. Help! Please tell me if 1) I can order this part from the UK, as I read that other Saturn owners do to save money, and 2) if the estimated cost given me is or is not a rip-out estimate. Thank you for any help you can offer. The car has 40,000 miles on it. I know nothing about cars, only that I do not have 1100 dollars to shell out!

HI,

Ok, list price is $490 for the ignition coil and labor is only 0.3 hr. total should be about $540 parts and labor, so yes, the $1100 is a rip off.

You can order one for $294 from here:

Do you have an idea how long it takes to receive the part if I order it from the site you gave?
Expert:  Eric replied 4 years ago.
Hi,

On regular shipping 5-7 business days, but you can have it 2 day shipped, and if memory seves, overnighted as well.

These are genuine GM parts as well, so you are not getting some chinese part that may or may not last
