Time and Cost to replace water pump? Dealer ripping me off?

I have a 2007 Saturn Outlook with 48k miles. The water pump went out and the dealer is quoting me $608 to replace it. Sounds like a lot since the part is less than $200 and the labor looks like it takes about 2-2.5 hours.

The car is 1 month out of the Powertrain warranty (kills me that stuff is going bad with LESS than 50k miles on it) and GM doesn't want to cover.

Anyone else had this done and can tell me if this cost is out of the norm?

Assuming $100/hr labor rate, that's about right.

1 month beyond warranty and less than 50K plus this is a known issue. GM ought to step up on this, have you contacted GM directly? Send 'GM Customer Service' here a private message.
Well, the first post in this thread shows about $600 from the dealer. Might be less from an independent shop.

I'd agree, 152K isn't bad for a H20 pump.
