Last month my oil pump and turbo failed. This month the timing belt. Good thing VW has a 100K warenty or I'd be out 5 grand. :nervous:

I believe for his car, the recommend timing belt change is something like 105k miles. This is one of the reasons I made sure to get the 2001.5 passat which was that last year they offered the 100k mile warranty. I will still have my belt inspected by a dealer at 60k and if its near needing replaceds, its going to be replaced for sanity reasons. I would rather spend the $400~ and not be without a car for a few weeks when and if it does break later.
