2010 FX35 repair cost estimates

Hello Folks- newbie here.


Wife drives the '10 FX35 daily, which now has a minor oil & coolant leak. Dealership identified oil leak from the oil cooler O-ring ($212) & valve cover/head gasket ($1598.00) repair/replace each. Next price [$290.00] is for the spark plug replacement, if done at same time as valve covers. $360 to replace rear brake pads.


Are these fair prices? Should I consider a non-dealer shop for any or all of these repairs?


Also- should I also look to replace all the belts and hoses at this point? FX has 98k miles.


Thanks for your replies...and good driving to you!

Garage
take it to an independent shop. Especially if you can find one that does a lot of G35 or 350Z work. The engines are the same for this kind of repair. Even a Nissan dealership will be cheaper. You can save 3/4 of that by doing it yourself if you are so inclined. None of these repairs are particularly difficult.

What did they say about the coolant leak?

For preventative maintenance you could change the belts as they are likely worn given your mileage.

05 FX35, Silverstone, Graphite, Touring, Escutcheon, Sport Pedals, LED Dtrl's(thanks rookie), Stillen STB, +2 Timing, Stillen CAI, LMS Z-Tube, Grrrowwl!!, Plenum is next (OK - well - actually the G35 E-brake pedal is next, but I swear, something is going to happen with that plenum).
