Timing belt broke - What's the likely damage and cost to repair?

(2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser)
in Plano, TX on March 29, 2010
Car stalled and wouldn't restart. Repair shop said timing belt slipped and bent valves. Initial estimate to repair is "between $1,500 and $1,800". Does that sound right?

the estimate sounds very right. remember, that is only an estimate. other thing may need to be replaced when the head is removed. you will only know this when the job is approved.
good luck

You can view the estimate here and choose timing belt replace but remember these prices are to replace the timing belt not to replace the bent valves or to repair any other damage that occurred, So their estimate has a $1000 to repair the other damage done to the engine
