Hi!The thermostat lists for $45.75 from the dealership and the housing cost depends on the body style of your Jetta. If you have a sedan, the housing lists for $31. If you have a wagon, the housing lists for $129. Replacing both will run you about 2.5 hours labor- labor rates vary depending on your location. The only other thing needed would be coolant. This should cost less than $20 for your vehicle.Keep in mind that shops will usually have a mark-up on their parts prices. The parts prices that I have listed are dealership parts, and aftermarket parts will be much cheaper if available.Let me know if you have any more questions!

I was told that it would cost approx. $450 to complete. Seems about the range if the parts were doubled but also was told it is about 4 hours to complete the work. Is that possible?
The time estimate seems a tad high for the repair. Parts prices may be doubled for the parts mark-up. This isn't uncommon.
