Unhappy Throttle position sensor @ USD1,300??

Hello,
I was just been shocked out of my socks when the local Saab dealer
diagnosed the loss of fuel intake during driving. They said it is a defective throttle position sensor and it'll cost me USD1,300 in part replacement only!!
Does this make sense?? I have just forked out over USD400 for sensor valve replacement, etc. BTW, I have a SAAB AERO 1995

Distressed

If your car has TCS (Traction control) I dare say by diagnosing a throttle position sensor they are quoting you a throttle body. And if by stealership you mean dealership who know more about saab's than any one else but charge a large amount for there correct diagnosis and quality parts you would be right .......sniff sniff ......*******s keep making fun of us .....
