$9 for one spark plug in my book is extortion and racketeering, how come these so-called "legitimate" businesses get away with it?

If you bought your mower from me in the current season, you get pulled in while in our wating room, and see if we can fix it within 90 minutes. If we can't, you're getting a loaner and back on your way.

Obviously, the guy asking about shop rate DOES'NT have a relationship with his dealer.

Our shop rate is $80.00 an hour. Just outside of Detroit.

Let the dealer bashing begin!
Yeah everyone always has an angle and a story but I understand today, what you folks mean by "relationship."
Btw... It's not IF.

What I figured out a long time ago about shop rates, get a load of this:
I can PAY myself $30 for every hour it takes me to fix my own, and I come out ahead.
And believe it or not I don't have to be ashamed of working for $30 an hour.
