Q: Car running cool on 2004 Volkswagen Passat

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My car seems to run "cool", only heats up to 190 when stopped. Blows warm air but never hot. Brought the car to mechanic and they said it's the water pump. It would be a $1300 fix. Does that sound right? Would my car be over heating if that we're the case?

Have the thermostat changed before any other work is done!
See if that fixes this problem. You are right about the H20 pump! Yes it would be overheating.
It was the thermostat. $247 later I ended up saving $1000 on unnecessary work. Thanks for the info!!!!!

If you are still experience heating issues and have had the stat replaced, heater core is the likely suspect. I see issues with the cores often at the shop.
