The drivers side bearing was going out on my 2009 Cobalt. I would have done it myself, but my back was acting up and I didn't have the time to do it. So I took it to a local garage and the guy replaced it for $230.00. I am assuming I paid about $180 in labor. Does that sound reasonable? I don't think it would even have taken me an hour to do it myself.
What say you?

With or without ABS? After market or OEM? With or without lifetime warranty? When You do it yourself you don't have to pay taxes on labour either. I personally think you did good and preserving your back is priceless!!!

LOL, yah, probably so. Sux to have a screwed up back.
It was an aftermarket hub and he did say it had a lifetime warranty but he didn't remember the brand off hand. I don't even know for sure if it has ABS or not. Hmmmm, I guess I should know that.
ANyway, thanks Coby7 for the reply.

If it didn't have abs, the cheapest I can get from local suppliers (napa, carquest, etc.) Is $96 + tax. So that's really not that bad at all.

If the car has 4 lug bolts instead of 5, then does that mean no ABS?

Yah, my daughter has an '07 with just over 150,000 and that one needed a wheel bearing about a year ago. Actually, the one that was replaced went bad about two months after being replaced so they put a new one on free of charge.
Good little cars. No real problems with them so far. Just normal stuff and the usually shake rattle and roll with any vehicle over 150,000 miles. No real oil burning issues either.

No, you can have 4 lug with or without ABS wheel speed sensors.

Or you can check under the hood for the ABS pump, it will be at the bottom to driver's side of the radiator with 5 brake lines going into it.
