labor for the work is the biggest additional factor...often the cost of labor is roughly equal to the costs of the parts. To a lessor degree would be taxes on the repair, and cost if any of renting another vehicle or arranging for alternate transportyation while the repair is done. Sometimes repair shops or dealers may offer loaner cars for free or reduced rental csts.
