    Has anyone of you ever had your timing belt break while driving? If so, tell us your horror story. Where were you driving to? How fast were you going? How much for towing?

    I just bought a sludged up '01 1.8T (65k) and have ordered AutoRx. Anyone have success stories about this stuff? Has anyone gone on to rack up well over 100k miles after using this product (I have no idea how long it has been on the market). I just hope after completing the sludge cleaning...
