Timing Belt Packages
Probably the most important maintenance service on your VW or Audi is timing belt maintenance. If you have owned your car since it was new, then check your owner’s manual for the maintenance schedule: 80k, 100k, etc, then make an appointment BEFORE you get to that mark.
If you bought your car used and you don’t know if this maintenance has been done, get it done NOW.
The timing belt on these cars doesn’t just break, it explodes into pieces that will damage other parts of your engine. A timing belt replacement will cost between $700 and $850 at Bob Mann Auto, $1000 to $1400 at a dealership, and $5000 to $7000 once it explodes.
