So! I was on my way to work when my car kept shaking as I accelerated, so I pulled over called a tow. The shop say it a rear drive shaft problem, but its gonna cost $1209 to do the work. I just want to know how much should a job like this cost cause I feel like I'm being taken.
My car has 126000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Depending on what the cause of the drive shaft causing the vibration is, this may be a reasonable estimate or not. If the drive shaft is damaged or broken and needs to be replaced, this may impact the estimate. If it is something more minor such as a U-joint that needs to be replaced, this may cost less. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at the vehicle to provide an estimate.
