Need To Replace CV Axle / Axle Shaft / CV Boot On ’01 Nissan Altima, How Much

I have a 2001 Nissan Altima, Manual Transmissiaon, 2.4 Liter engine, I went to a mechanic to have my oil changed, he said that I’m also going to need to replace my left front CV Axle or Axle shaft. He said that grease is leaking from the boot and that it’s too late to change the boot, so I have to change the whole CV Axle. I had this same problem a year ago, I replaced the boot only. The mechanic told me that it might be something in the transmission that is causing the Axle to break since I am having this problem again, he said that this is unlikely though. He said that the price to change the axle will be roughly $300 that’s including the parts and labor and tax. I am thinking that this is too much. Can anyone tell me if this is the right price or not?
