I have the same model year, 170,000 miles.
I had both the timing belt and the water pump replaced last month.
Cost was right at $425.00 if memory serves correctly.
Keep in mind I did the alternator and power steering belts myself so all the shop did was the timing belt and water pump.

Seems kind of high to me, but I do most of the easy work myself. I would talk to some of you neighbors about this. Water pumps are not very difficult to change out.
