Houston Area 2005 G35X Repair’s Needed

Postby HoustonG35X2005 » Tue Mar 03, 2020 9:33 am

My mom (65 y/o!) has an amazing charcoal gray 2005 G35X in Houston with only 52K miles. She has a couple issues that need repair and the dealer shop basically tried to steal the car from her... saying $4k+ repairs or they’d buy it for $1.4K.

I am going to fly down there to help her out. Below are the actual issues. Any feedback re: fair price for repairs and/or recommendations in Houston area would be hugely helpful! Don’t want her being taken advantage of.

ITEMS REQUIRING IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

THE POWER STEERING LINE IS RUSTED OUT AND COULD BRAKE AT ANY TIME
* NEED TO REPLACE THE P/S LINES FROM PUMP TO THE RACK. (BOTH LINES)

ITEMS REQUIRING ATTENTION SOON

FLUID LEAKS (OIL/TRANSMISSION/COOLANT)
THE ENGINE OIL COOLER SEAL IS LEAKING.
* NEED TO REPLACE THE OIL COOLER SEAL ASSY.
DECLINED

FRONT SHOCKS/SUSPENSION (CV BOOTS/TIE RODS/BUSHINGS)
THE U-JOINT AT THE STEERING SHAFT IS RUSTED AND COULD BE DAMAGE.
* SHOULD REPLACE THE SHAFT U-JOINT ASSY

POWER STEERING FLUID
THE POWER STEERING FLUID IS NOT CIRCULATING AS SHOULD.
* NEED TO REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PUMP ASSY
