Question 2007 bmw x3

I am still under the extended warranty 83k now and they just called and let me know I have to replace my thermostat in my X3 at a cost of $600. I am aware this is mostly labor time but can this be related to the "new transmission" they put in as a result of the problems I had at 36K miles Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

The thermostat is independant of your transmission. It is on the opposite side of the engine.

If you were having maintenance performed on your water pump or cooling system, then the thermostat would come into the mix. But, not for transmission work.

Your car is a the age/mileage where a thermostat could fail. Sometimes they last a real long time and sometimes they don't.

Isn't the thermostat covered under your extended warranty?
