Default Resurrect Dead Suzuki!

Hi Drivers,

Can anyone offer any advice on what it should cost to replace the engine and catalytic converter in a 2009 Suzuki Alto?

The dealer we towed it to is where my partner bought it on finance (not yet fully paid off) and they are saying that there was no oil in the engine (even though the oil light never came on), and when I asked them how much it would cost to have a new engine, they said it would be more than the car is worth.

I have gotten quotes online for a new engine, and they range from 350 to 650 with warranty. When I told him this, he ummed and ahhed and bit, and seemed to change tack a little. Basically, I don't fully trust them, I think they've "seen my girlfriend coming", and think there's easy money to be had.

What I'd like to know from anyone who's had experience in this area, is what would be a fair price for putting a new engine and catalytic converter into my girlfriends car, and how long should it take?

Thanks in advance for any advice

Max will become famous soon enough

New engine, used engine or rebuilt (re-man) engine?

We have no idea as to your location ($'s) or ability to possibly do the installation work yourself either. Nor do we know the condition of the REST of the vehicle in determining if the repair efforts are worth the investment.

Shop around locally and get quotes based on the engine that you want / need based on line one of this reply. Add quoted installation costs and you are there!
