If you work @ a Saturn dealer, why would you even entertain to take your car in for a battery to a competing GM dealer????
I show suggested MSRP for a 04 GTO battery to be $180, however I'd never sell it otherwise. I have those sales priced for $124.90
Was the $200 an installed price or for the battery alone????
A GTO is very much an import as far as parts pricing is concerned, many unique parts, aside from the powertrain itself...if you were looking for cheap...you should have bought a 2004 Cavalier!!!

As for parts pricing...I'm not surprised by the knee-jerk reactions posted...
I consistently retail (& wholesale) many GM maintenence parts for several reasons...
#1...I have them
#3...right part on the 1st try...
Hmmm, I wonder why the dealers are in trouble?
Some are...some are not.
I've had record sales/profits the last 4 consecutive months...
