I don't know very much about cars. During an inspection, the dealership said my front right inner tie rod was loose and recommended replacing the entire steering rack on my 2007 RAV 4 for $2500. They said that on some cars you can replace the inner tie rod but not on a 2007 RAV 4.
I took the vehicle to another mechanic for a second opinion (before just buying another car). The second mechanic said it is easy and much cheaper to replace the inner tie rod, and there was no need to replace the steering rack.
Which mechanic should I trust? I do not want to waste money, and also do not want to drive an unsafe car.
