Labor costs -clutch replacement and front suspension of esteem
Gave my brothers much abused 2001 Esteem VX for replacement of the clutch and lower suspension arms at the local garage.
Is 800 in labor costs for the clutch replacement and 850 in labor for the suspension arm replacement and 'general' suspension greasing/overhaul reasonable?
The mechanic is very competent.

that's very close to what i pay at a MASS ! maybe a hundred or so less. As long as your mechanic follows the same procedure (torque for tightening, removal/installation procedures as recommended by maruti) you'd be fine - but in my experience I am _yet_ to find a non-MASS setup following the same _exact_ steps as mentioned in the service manual - it's mostly due to lack of all the proper tools - but that's my experience(in Goa) - Your's might be different!

genesis - How many Km's has the Esteem done ?
techn0l0gist - I am sure now-a-days clutch replacement is a very common job for the local guys too. so I dont expect any problem
