I am thinking retail was just under 1K (maybe 899?). We had just gotten one before I quit the audio shop. Most of the price was for the GPS stuff.

I am sure they are cheaper now.
A little more information is necessary. Car/Year/Aftermarket/Stock? Most of the time if a cd changer is having issues, it'll need to be repaired at a reputable audio repair place. Preferably one that specializes in car audio.
