Italian term or phrase: proposta economica troppo onerosa
Sebbene le 2 modalità di intervento (in garanzia e fuori garanzia) mantengano di fatto l'allineamento conseguito lo scorso anno, il cliente francese che ha usufruito nell'ultimo semestre di un servizio di assistenza a pagamento, mostra una propensione molto più contenuta ad esprimere un passaparola positivo con il 18% che non raccomanderebbe mai il punto di assistenza a cui si è rivolto (pag.6). A sostegno di questo risultato emerge attualmente una forte insoddisfazione dei nostri clienti verso una proposta economica troppo onerosa (i detrattori pongono il prezzo elevato al vertice delle principali motivazioni di non raccomandabilità (pag.8) ed al tempo stesso l'item di valutazione "prezzo pagato rispetto il servizio ricevuto", già "worst in class" nel passato, peggiora ulteriormente (pag.21).

I was undecided whether to translate "proposta economica" as "estimate" or more literally "economic proposal/offer" - please advise - thanks to all in advance.
