    Did I just get ripped of?

    I've got a 2007 Vortec 6.0L Chevy 5 window Thomas short bus, 125,000 miles now. Been driving and living in it it for a little over a year. Runs great.

    But, I noticed a water leak and it increased from a drip to loss of more than a quart when I stopped.

    Figured my water pump was shot and managed to limp over 100 miles of isolated high prairie to Malta, Montana.

    Mechanic diagnosed water pump fail - replacement of water pump, thermostat, and belts cost me $750.

    Was I ripped off? Could it have been just the gaskets? Should I have done additional preventive maintenance while he was under the hood? Appreciate your thoughts.
