Default I saved almost 40% by not using majestic honda

I built an order totaling $1,062.07 at Majestic then by fluke used Honda Village Parts to rebuild the order and it was only $658.35

I'm now rebuilding an earlier order I did with Majestic that totaled 2300 bucks to see how much they stiffed me for over Honda Villages prices.

If it also comes out at almost 40% then they got me for 920 bucks which would have more than paid for this second order on a different car.

Honda Village?

Newton Honda dealer in Newton Corner MA - New and Used Honda dealership Cambridge Watertown Waltham MA

I used the eparts store and was presented with outrageous prices.

I'm trying to experiment with their site, but it isn't nearly as user friendly as Majestics. If they allow access to the actual parts listings, I couldn't find it on the site. They seem to insist on a form requesting availability and price, which requires extra work to get a price. I have a request in now for a short list.

Yeah, I had a time one night making an order. One site would not take paypal, another would not sell me cvt fluid and ebay the fluid bottles looked different so I was worried of counterfeit or old stock. I ended up going to https://www.afhparts.com/ . For some small part I used the eparts section of my dealers website of colonial honda in richmond, va.

I don't know what was in your parts list. My experience in pricing 4 items was exactly the opposite. Honda Village was 50-70% higher than Majestic. My "test" list consisted of EGR valve, cylinder head, headlight assy., and tail light assy.

Yeah. I did a compressor for an HCH2, and it was $710 Village vs. $454 Majestic. Neither price includes field coil or clutch. Yeah. A/C w/auto-stop is friggin asspensive.

Default CVT fluid

I picked up my fluid on amazon.com for about $100 with free shipping.
