If it's not covered under warranty they charge. All of them do that. A charge of $100 is reasonable from a dealer.
Let me say this about diagnostic charges. Why would anyone want to use the equipment and diagnostic skills and labor of any repair shop for free - they have bills to pay. Nothing is free. Want it "free" then buy an appropriate scanner and other tools and learn how to trace and fix the cause yourself.

Just getting a code though is not worth a $100 diagnostic fee. But tracing the cause of the code is well worth the $100. A good mechanic (not a parts chaser) should not need more than about an hour to do it.

The dealership is wanting to charge me $175 for a diagnostic. Is this too much?
What's the dealership's hourly flat rate charge? Hard to say, if it's a common problem the tech can diagnose in 1/2 an hour then maybe an hours labor would be more honest. Could try another dealer or maybe an independent shop for quote on diagnostic. Go to a parts store and get them to scan for codes for free, then research the codes on the internet. At least it will make you more knowledgable.

You do know that shops routinely charge women higher rates, sorry to say.
