To determine if a price is high, low or what have you, inquire what the book time is to replace the radiator in your car and multiply that by the auto center's labor rate to come up with the labor total. For example, let's say the Mitchell Labor guide lists 1.5 hours to replace the radiator and the auto center's hourly labor rate is $80. That will be 1.5 X $80 = $135.00 total labor cost. Then you add in the price of the radiator, coolant and any needed hoses, or clamps and you have the total price. You don't want to get ripped off of course, but considering how important it is to have a reliable vehicle, I would not recommend using cheap parts if you can avoid it.
