Simply ask the shop what their hourly rate is. Under $100 is pretty cheap, $100-$120 is typical, and over $120 is high.

The best way to save money is to DIY as much as you can;

1. Replace the seat buckles yourself and then pay $100 to have the airbag light turned off.
2. Perform the 60K service yourself and save $500 (or more).
3. Not sure what it takes to replace the crank case breather but I'd look into it and see if I could do it myself and save probably half.
