If I remember correctly it was about $800 for the timing belt work.
Oil changes are every 10K and they are running me <$70.
I needed a new belt tensioner.
Don't recall any other non-scheduled service costs.
He just changed his timing belt for the 3rd time.That kind of preventative maintenance I've always felt makes a huge difference in the reliability/durability of a vehicle. He is the one that always changes his oil (synthetic) He can't stand for anyone else to touch his "baby". Has gone thru 3 sets of Michelin tires, has them rotated regularly. He drives it to work 5 days a week and also just to rip around town. Only once did it break on him we made a trip up to Ohio in 09 to visit our daughter, we were almost to TN coming back to SC and it just quit. Some tiny hose got a little cut on it. Don't remember the exact name but it about killed him to see the Jetta loaded on a flatbed cause he had checked it over before we left home. We have an 06 TDI that is mine, just turned 112,000 she is our Ohio trip car now. It only gets 44mph instead of the 50+ his does.
I haven't done it yet but it seems to run in the seven to eight + tax range around here to do the timing belt and water pump on my 04. Changing the pump while they have it apart is pretty much standard procedure even though the manual doesn't call for it.
Mine's been pretty good. New strut bearings and a turbo replaced on warranty but in the four years it has been off warranty, no issues. Touch wood.
