Hello
your answer is just what I have been looking for
I took my 2006 Cadillac S TS to have the headlight replace
it cost me $187.00 I couldn't believe it
I figured that I had been ripped off
when I saw your answer I realize that the price was just about right
thank you very much for your input
and I will be using you again

hello. your welcome for the answer. MOST repair shops are legit... and if your ever in doubt about the amount of labor being charged for a repair... you could always ask to be shown the labor guide. BUT you must understand that there are instances where a labor guide is wrong due to rusted components, other unseen repairs, and so forth.

 

thanks again... and thank you for using Just Answer.
