On another note, How much profit does Starbucks make on a 10 cents cup of coffee?.

There is a reason I drink Folgers -- cheap.

$109 is our shop rate. A mirror cost $200. They charge 1.8 hrs. to install a mirror. Roughly $196. Almost as much as the part itself and it's 3 nuts and a plug-in connector. If you're handy...20 mins. and save yourself $196. Crazy.

My local dealer moved into a new location, it sits on 33 acres and has 40 service bays. I don't think they would have invested in that large of a building if service wasn't making them big profits.

Bet they would have charged an hour to put the Wingman on my antenna. Makes me so glad I can fix things.

Look like normal rates to me. Working in dispatch for a trucking company, rarely do I see rates under $100 per hour. Don't even think about road service rates. I paid a bill today that was $340 to replace a terminal on a starter. Service was done less the 2 hours after I called them, and the gave me a hour eta before they would even send someone.

There is a lot of overhead that has to be covered. They are not in business to break even or make a 10% margin. If you aren't making 40 to 50% margin you may as well not be in business. As others have said I do most of my own work but the rate is fair.

I hear ya. I can do it all but carpet and roofs. Mainly, because I don't want to. I built homes with a local builder for a while when I was younger and the owners taught me everything. From carpentry (my hobby now) to electric to plumbing. I do all the work around my house. Just built a 42 x 18 deck on the back of the house, built-ins around my fireplace then stoned the fireplace, tiled the foyer and powder room, etc etc. The DW loves to help as well. So I'm thinking, I'll do most repairs on my trailer unless it's warranty. I'd be hard-pressed to take it to a dealer if I know I can do it on my own.
