Q: I have a leaking power steering hose according to my dealership, they said it would take 5 hours to repair and cost $843.00, $800

asked by on February 08, 2017

I had my 2013 Acadia in to repair a sensor and they said I have a leak in a power steering hose next to the knuckle? They wanted to charge $843 dollars to repair, $800 was for labor, would take 5 hours to repair. This cost seemed high to be and I am going to get other quotes to repair. What do you think?

My car has 55000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. It would probably benefit you to obtain a second opinion. Although the power steering system can take time to prime and replace a hose, that estimate of labor is rather high; but expected by a dealership.
