Cool Heater core and rad replacement

I have a 2002 PT that over heated, blew a hose and now my mechanic is saying I need a new heater core (never had problems with steam or heat ) and a new rad too. This also would mean new thermostat as well. All this for about $1500-1700. Is this realistic and has anyone had similar problems.
I am getting conflicting answers for timing belt replacement, some say 120km some say 120 miles. thanks

Timing belt we all suggest 100,000 miles. Price on radiator seem high, of course I'm in the US.

You have to remove the dash and evacuate the a/c system in order to replace the heater core, so there's a significant amount of labor involved.

Chrysler recommends 120k miles for the timing belt, but it's a good idea to replace it a little early, such as 100k miles.
