First off, I'm sorry if this has been answered a million times. I'm new to this forum.I have an '05 VW 2.0 Jetta MK IV with 60K miles.
My question is:
When should the timing belt be replaced?
As per VW Customer service the timing belt should only be checked at 80K.
They directed me to the VW website bellow where I can check my next Maintenance Schedule and indeed it does say that the first check for Timing belt should occur when the car only reaches 80K
I do agree that 80K is a lot to expect in a TB, but the German engineers that spec the belt should know how long it will last ... under a variety of conditions ... and it is not up to the consumer, who shouldn't know or care what a timing belt does, to second guess published maintenance intervals.
