I'm not sure what the prevailing labor rates are where you live, but my
guess is that the labor should be about 1.5 hours at the most to replace the
front pipe. The front pipe has a flex joint that makes it more expensive,
and it is made of stainless steel, but I don't think it should cost a
thousand dollars.

The good news is that you now have a lifetime warranty on that part and the
labor associated with installing it, so keep your receipt!!!

You can check here for factory recalls and you do not need to bring post
cards to have them done. Recall remedies are free.

Good luck,
