The shop billed those 2 hours out at $100, making them $200.00 minus the techs wage. Its called flat rate, this is not new.
I'm 50 years old. It's been that way for as long as I can remember ... and I was a parts driver for a dealership when I was 18 years old.
They had books showing the number of hours for every repair job. Every dealer charged the same number of hours for every job.
