We've been told we need to have our front-right wheel bearing replaced. The noise I am hearing is consistent with this. RepairPal is telling me the cost should run between $244 - $325. The quotes I've gotten have been for $415 and $455. What would be valid reasons for this difference?

Sounds reasonably high...their valid reasons may include...parts markup...padded labor time...very busy schedule...possibly misunderstood and quoted you for BOTH wheel bearings.

Is your Sienna 2WD or AWD? Did the bearing fail possibly due to hitting a pothole 20K miles ago? ---they may be including alignment in their est. ------Get specifics on what is being done , and related warranty coverage for those items. But , yeah $20.00 is about right.
