Engine Cooling problem
2002 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 119000 miles

Hello, a couple of weeks ago my car broke down and when I took it to the dealership to get checked out, I was told that I needed to replace the radiator and thermostat, but other than that everything looked good. Now, 20 days later, my car overheated this morning and when I took in they told me that I had to replace the waterpump, hose, and the thermostat AGAIN. I was quoted $652.01 for this. Is this something that should have/could have been caught and prevented when they replaced the radiator?

It should have been caught right then and there if they have tested the cooling system thoroughly. My opinion-
