So I was driving home in my 2016 MKC. And the alternator went out in the middle of stop and go traffic on the highway. because I got the tow package and heated/cooled seats it wasn't the normal 200 amp alternator but instead the 220 amp. Shopping around prices are around $450 bucks just for the alternator alone. Add in the $75 core charge and shipping and you're looking at around $550 bucks if not more.

That being said there's anyone of any idea what the labor cost I'm looking at is going to be? or has anyone ran into or experienced a similar issue with their MKC? I'm curious to know.

It takes 2-3 hours to replace the alternator. Dealer prices are higher than independent shops. How do you know it's the alternator?

That shouldn't be too bad then. Ended up finding one in Missouri for 450. My dealer wanted $650 for one. Crazy prices. And I figured it out when the "service charging system now" warning went off... And had it tested at my mechanics.
