Just in case anyone lives in Tampa Bay, Lexus of Clearwater has a $299 Timing Belt replacement special right now. I know because my 02 IS is getting it done right now. That is just for the timing belt. They checked the water pump and told me it had no seapage so I should not replace it.

If you intend to keep the car to the next belt change...or even up until 120K
then do the pump. They typically will not last 180K.

For an extra $170-$270 (depending on how the stealership gets you) you should get the pump if the belt is only costing $299. But actually 3 hours labor just for the belt is about right (which means they are doing it at cost which is a great deal) Since it will take another hour to do the pump they may charge you another hour of labor plus the price of the pump.
