My '96 RAV4 needs a clutch job: 2WD, 5spd, 200K miles, good mechanical condition overall. I figured it'd be about a $1000 job, but the 3 estimates I received (2 from reputable service shops, 1 from a dealer) range from $1700 - $1900, plus tax. Two questions for those in the know: 1. Is $1000 unrealistic for such a job? 2. Any recommended shops or independent mechanics for the service? (I'm relatively new to the area, so was relegated to Google hits, yellow pages & advertisements for the estimates above.) Hoping to find that unadvertised "good guy" & potentially establish a long term automotive relationship. Appreciate any advice. Extra credit for shops to avoid as well. Post or PM. Thanks Guys!
