What should timing belt replacement cost on a 2002 Jetta TDI?

This answer was rated:

What should timing belt replacement cost on a 2002 Jetta TDI? Local dealers/service departments are telling me about 1600.00 (+-) and quoting the need to replace tensioner pullies and waterpump. Is this reasonable?
Unfortunately, they are in the ball park with that estimate. You might be able to find a independant shop that will do it for $800ish but you really need to trust where you are taking the car. The water pump and tensioner pullies are most definately part of the job.
