Duty C replacement at Gwinnet Subaru in Atlanta

Recommended Posts

Been talking to a friend about his trans for awhile and he needs the Duty C replaced. Gwinnet Subaru quoted him $200 to replace his Duty C Solenoid if he brings the part in. Two thoughts:

 

The Subaru dealers I've dealt with won't install supplied parts.

$200 seems really cheap for just labor.

 

Didn't Will (WJM) used to work at Gwinnet Subaru?

I totally agree that's a smoking good price, particularly since we'd both rather him go to a dealer....but it's too good! I'm wondering if he's going to end up needing....clutches (which i know he doesn't need), hub, all new exhaust, etc by the time it's done. A sort of baiting tactic if you will.

 

So have others had a Subaru dealer install used or parts bought elsewhere? I've only really dealth extensively with two dealers, but neither of them do that.

Is he sure it's just the Duty C?

 

If the dealer installs his part and it doesn't fix the problem he's out the part and cost of install with no guarantee/warranty on fixing the problem.

The dealer I work for will install customer supplied parts on older vehicles. Of course they'd rather put on OEM parts, but sometimes O.E. parts cost more than the car's worth, and some owners just aren't willing to pay that much.
