New Water Pump Costs on 2002 Chrysler Sebring

I have a 2002 Sebring Covnertable with 70,000 miles. It has been leaking coolant. I took it into the dealer and they quoted me $1700 to replace the water pump, housing, thermostate and coolant. They said it would take 7 hours labor. Sounds pricey to me. What should this repair cost?
