Very confused. Took my up to my local VW dealership yesterday to have a new key programmed and they say the timing belt needs changing after 5 years or 70k miles whichever comes first. I said the service schedule stated that the belt is a long life item and should only be checked at 130 k km and not changed before then. I think, this is what it says . I wish someone could once and for all put this common issue to bed. How do we make contact with vw in Germany to confirm this? A replacement belt via vw is an expensive job. Thanks.
