Haiti Auto Repair - Mechanic demands $7,500 Gourdes for a used part that cost $9.80 US brand new

Car parts cost a fortune in Haiti don't they? My car recently broke down in Haiti because of a bad crankshaft position sensor. A mechanic in my hometown demanded HTG $7500 Haitian gourdes for a used replacement part...

Buying auto parts on eBay

I went on eBay and purchased the part brand new for $9.88 us, FREE Shipping.

Keep in mind, $7500 Haitian gourdes is roughly $115 US. The mechanic wants almost 12 times the price to buy it brand new plus I have no guarantee that the part will work.

Don't you even try to go to a dealer in Haiti to order an automotive part. It is freaking expensive

How did I get it to Haiti?

That's another article :)
