The dealer had my van for a full day, for both the shift cable and fan recall repairs.I've scheduled my repair with the dealer early in December, does anyone know how long it typically takes to complete the work? I'm looking to schedule a road trip as soon as possible after it's done. Looking online at the Shift Cable Bushing kit @uralwrench mentioned, it looks like a quick/easy repair, but just wondering if anyone's had a shop do it, and how long it took.
Always factor in extra time. If I recall correctly, my dealer casually mentioned the recall would take "an hour and 15 maybe". I also had them change the oil and check my battery, to which they said "Maybe 3 hours then". It took the better part of 5 hours... As @Uvan said, a big chunk of that is just dealer admin overhead. My van sat around in the service centre parking lot for quite a while before it was taken into the service bays. And after it was done, they took some time doing up the paperwork and finding me (I was lounging in the showroom using their wifi to research van upgrades...).Thank you! That helps my planning process!
