Wow, lower parts prices

I just ordered a Mass Air Flow Sensor for my van.

Dealer quoted $298 + $35 core charge

Tousley Ford Parts was $138 for the same OEM part.

Now I have to pay shipping instead of sales tax, but $160 less for the same part!

Like I said 'Wow'

Dealers have independence when pricing parts. Pays to shop around.

and then

Re: Wow, lower parts prices

I needed to replace the hydraulic control module for my 95 recently. Ford dealer price in Albuquerque was $1100 and change. Found it online for half that. Bought it and had it installed for less than my local dealer wanted for the part alone. It definitely pays to shop around and with the internet it doesn't take much work.
