Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Unless there is more included in the price that I am not aware of it does sound a little high. I'm showing list price on the left door latch to be $631 and the labor to replace it calls for .9, which I'm sure they would have rounded to one hour. If their labor rate was $100 an hour I would expect the price to replace the latch to be about $750 with tax.
