Default Water pump/timing belt replacement cost?

My 02' PT has 68k miles on it.I've been thinking maybe I should do a water pump/timing belt replacement just to be safe.I called my local Chrysler dealer,they quoted me $700 to replace them.Does this sound reasonable to you guys?

jump on it after getting it in writing.
lemme know where you're located so i can drive there and have mine done.
the cheapest i've seen on these forums has been around $1000.

I checked my local PEPBOYS and here's the pricing for the parts

Part Name Part # Manufacturer Required $ Price

95265 DAYCO TIMING BELT KIT 1 $29.99
INTERFERENCE ENG - WATER PUMP DRIVEN BY TIMING BELT

84102 DAYCO TIMING BELT KIT 1 $123.99
TIMING COMPONENT KIT - w/o BELT INTERFERENCE ENG - WATER PUMP DRIVEN BY TIMING BELT

Plus labor - I bet it would be under $700

sounds about right. my neighbor helped me REDO mine after chrysler said they did it but they NEVER replaced the tensioners. paid them about 900 to do it originally. make sure u have someone legit do it.

I only wish I could get the job done for that price. But why do the work now? Maybe you've been reading too many horror stories on this and other PT forums. You only hear about the problems, it seems. Not the majority that just do as they're designed to do with proper maintenance. Most PT's don't blow a timing belt or water pump if they're changed at 90 or 100 thousand miles. Why do it early?

I have an '02 with 106K on it, and I just now replaced the timing belt and water pump, serp. belts, etc. He also did a 100K tune up - total cost was around $1200; probably about $1000 just for the timing belt and water pump. Labor was half the cost.
Also, as Tim mentioned before, why get it done now? You should be able to get another 10 or 15K (or more!) out of that timing belt and water pump, unless you know it's bad now, or if you just have the money now and want to get it done.

Yeah,they said I had some time before Chrysler recomends getting it done.I believe it's close to 100k.I was just checking to make sure I didn't push it too far.I guess I've read too many bad horrior stories.Thanks for your responses though,I don't think they are to far outta line on their pricing.
