Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Was this an emissions test?

Does you know what area you failed in?

Whom gave the quote?

How much was the quote?

The quote was to diagnose and repair and replace what?

The was a Maryland State InspectionThe inspection was given by Top Gear Auto ShopIt faild and I was told in order to bring it to passing it would be $1800-$2000
I attached a picture of the report that list what failed how much do you think all of this would cost
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Alignment 69$ plus any parts worn out and the labor time to replace them which are causing it to be out of alignment

Brakes 119-600$ for brake pads, resurface or replace rotors.

Steering 150-300$ can be related to the alignment parts needed.

Rear suspension 250-500$ can be related to alignment parts needed.

Front suspension 250-500$ can be related to alignment parts needed.

Wiper and washer repair 60-150$ blades and possibly new pump.

Door window 250$ diagnose to see if the switch, motor, or regulator is bad

Engine mounts 300-600$

Give or take this is my estimate from what I can see on the paper. Do realize I can not see it in person nor have the parts numbers needed to get exact prices. I would say a quote of 2k for all these parts and labor is acceptable.
