The guy quoted me $330 P&L over the phone and then when I got there and confirmed it was the CVV, the price jumped to $600.

I'm not surprised and I figured it would take about a half a day to do the work, so I gave them the okay to do it. I just hate it when mechanics misquote for this stuff.

I've taken it to this shop twice and this is the second time this has happened (one quote on the phone, another quote when you get there for the same work you were quoted over the phone). I figured the first time was a communication issue, but this is pretty cut and dry. I won't be going back to that shop again.

Kind of a bummer, honestly, but definitely still got a better price than the dealer ($1180).
