Question 99 renault scenic _ with a strange knocking sound

car went to the dealer yesterday.....we had a phonecall to pick up the car today and got a for $170 NZD for

1)diagnosing tje power steering arm leak,which was already established by the same mechanic last month at a different workshop(renault changed dealers on 1st jan) for @ $30

2)I suggested to the dealer when we dropped the car off yesterday that I thought the Left rear shock absorber was broken.....and today we had the pleasure of $140 bill for diagnosing a broken shock and a quote for $700 + GST NZD to replace the rear shocks........WTF

sorry for my reaction .....but dos this sound like legalised robbery??

anyways I have rung a couple shock shops to get a quote for replacement of both rear shocks....I am looking forward to seeing what the quotes are......

The power steering arm is covered under the extended warranty so I am happy with that

Look forward to peoples thoughts.....
