2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Re: Water pump/timing belt on 03 VUE FWD V6

Interesting. That is the second time that someone has told me that their retailer quoted them significantly less on a repair than mine. the hourly rate here in St. Louis is around 100.

here was the breakdown:

labor: 650
parts: (timing belt/serpentine belt/air filter/Dexcool/water pump) 300
tax/fees/etc. 50

my parts costs were 36 for the pump (saturn emp cost)
total of 90 for the timing and serp belts, filter and Dexcool for all GM parts from my local parts store.
