    I have a Ford Ka 2003. took it for service and three things need replacing. do these prices seem right or am I being overcharged?

    If those prices all include labour, they don’t seem outrageous.

      Thank you for getting back to me. i was a bit concerned about the thermostat housing because I don’t understand why it costs so much or wha the thermostat housing actually does. On my service report it says it’s leaking. one other advisory is that my front brake pads are corroded and pitted. does that mean i need new ones or can just drive the car a bit till the rust is off?

    Advisories are just that – forewarning of issues that will need to be addressed at some point in the future. Depending on your driving circumstances, that could be next week, next month or next year.
