Default Fair repair price??

Hey all,
Just wonderin what ya think.. I just had my 95 SE fixed and was just wonderin what ya thought of what my mechanix charged me..

My belt tensioner assembly with a new pulley was replaced, I blew a bearing out in the old one, it didn't sound pretty I knew it wasn't just the belt sqeaking, he also replaced my water pump, its been slowly leaking for about a month and he said to replace it now because it was right there anyway and it wouldn't cost me anymore money in labor. The old belt was fine, didn't need a new one. He charged me for 2 hours labor @$65 an hour. The bill came to with tax and fresh antifreeze to $359.00 rounded up. Seems like a pretty fair price to me..

Any thoughts???

Considering the $80 price tag for a new tensioner, and the $50 or so for a water pump, and adding in labor, I feel you got a pretty fair deal.

Thanks, I'll sleep better tonight..I thought I paid a fair price

My mechanic seems real honest and he realy knows his stuff, hes an old timer. I found him a few months back.

Thanks again...
