How much does it cost to fix a car thermostat?

How much should it usually cost to fix a car thermostat? I think my car's starting to overheat because the thermostat's broken. I know I need to replace it, but I want to know what it'll cost first.

Unfortunately, thermostats play an essential role in your car. So fixing a car thermostat will usually cost somewhere in the range of $200 to $300. But you’ll need to speak with your mechanic to get a more exact estimate.
More than labor costs, the price will depend on your car. While a Honda Accord Thermostat will cost around $150, a Jaguar XJ thermostat could cost up to $500.
Remember, your thermostat helps regulate your engine heat—so a broken one can do a lot of damage. Investing a few hundred dollars in a new thermostat now can save you thousands on repairs in the long run. But if you’re still nervous about spending so much on a thermostat, you can try saving on other car expenses.
