Mine just broke on the freeway yesterday, I was going like 60mph, and I have an acura integra, 1996. It has about 119,000 miles on it, I went to a Tire Pro place that does everything, and they gave me an estimate of $1200, because they have to buy a whole kit that goes with the belt and their going to replace the water pump and give me a tune up at the same time. The parts are all about $800 bucks but the labor is what gets you. I guess its a pain to take all that apart and get to it.
