I dont care how often you change rhe oil,vws jump time,all the time.The turbo charged beattle motors call for the belt to ve changed at 60,000 miles.I have seen several that broke before 50,000. It is easy to spend $1500 just repairing the 5 valve head.That doesnt include labor to pull and reinstall it,or any other damage the engine may have suffered.
Vws are exspensive to own unless new.
