What are the Most Expensive Car Parts to Replace?

car parts

One of the many reasons why people decide to own Chevy vehicles is because they are known for their reliability. They also typically have low maintenance costs.

It’s important to keep this in mind because if you’re proactive about service, often you can avoid big – and pricey – repairs or replacements down the road. If you’re wondering which Chevy parts are particularly expensive to replace, LaFontaine Chevrolet Dexter offers some insight.


Even if you have never gotten into an accident and had the airbags deployed, there is a chance that something could go wrong with the system. The good news is that this may not be a big or elaborate fix.

The bad news, however, is that if your airbags had been used at some point, they will not be able to be used again. In this case, they need to be replaced, and in some instances, a new steering wheel will need to be installed as well. This could cost between $2,500 and $4,000 at a Chevy service center.


You may not realize it, but your car’s suspension is made up of several different components that need to work together in order to provide a smooth ride. If one part needs to be fixed or replaced, generally this isn’t too expensive of a job. However, if it turns out that the entire suspension system needs a replacement, this could end being between $2,500 and $4,000.


The transmission is an essential part of your car’s drivetrain, as it takes the power created by the engine and sends it to the wheels. Clearly, if the transmission isn’t working properly, you won’t be able to use your vehicle. Depending on the extent of the issue, a transmission may be able to get fixed. If it needs to be replaced, you could be looking at a bill around $6,000.


Of course, the engine is also an integral component of your car. And just like with the transmission, in many cases it may just require a repair. If you do end up needing a new engine, this will probably run you somewhere between $7,000 and $10,000.
