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.
