I purchased a NB convertible 1.8 turbo ( 100K miles) from reliable source in nov 2018. Tune up and repair of three tires- $500. Now a fuel pump- $600. Is this about right. I have been using this mechanic for over 20 years and he knows Volkswagon. I dont believe he would cheat me. Do these prices sound about right> Should I start reading on repairs myself? I'm 47 with basic knowledge in American cars. I never paid so much for repairs. His going rate for labor is $100 per hour. Thoughts?

Sounds high to me.on these cars you have to do your own repairs to save $$. I paid $90 for a good brand fuel pump, replaced myself, save a bundle.

OK for new tires but high on fuel pimp. Bought OEM fuel pump on Ebay for $100 & mechanic installed for another $100. The $600 sounds like dealer prices since fuel pump only from them is about $275.
