My local renault dealer wanted 440 to change my

He's charging 160. I,d say stay away from the dealers if at
all possible.
The V6 has to have the manifold removed to access the plugs at the rear of the engine, so it entails considerable labour charges. I believe the Espace V6 is even costlier.

I too will avoid dealerships but what about others who don't know any better? Aren't they being misled and rendered captive?
