My '98 Contour SVT just had it's second water pump replacement. (Previous new pump was in 2007) Is this a common problem?

My car only has 76,000 miles and I hope to keep driving this great car.  Was the $445.00 price tag each time fair?

Water pumps, especially remanufactured ones you get at the auto parts stores don't last all that long. The price you paid is book value for that job at a quality mechanic with a warranty.
