Just had mine replaced on my C-Max. That plus a TMAP sensor and diagnostic cost just over £500!

The sensor itself only costs around £60 to £80 (when I looked into it after having the work done!!). Not sure what ruins them or whether or not they just wear out (I've only done 30K). I'm not even sure what the "fault" was with mine as it didn't improve my rough running and Ford could not tell me why it failed, just that it was showing up as faulty on the computer.
