Gladly, I stand corrected. Sounds like you made a good purchase Roger.
As to Kent's mention of a time limit on a t-belt, I agree in
principle, but I think 5 yrs is a little short. Case in point is the
wife's Jetta (1.8t). The t-belt is checked at 40k and 80k, but
replaced at 105k: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2319958
. How many people are going to do 105k in 5 years? I haven't seen a
specified time limit, but 10 years would seem a reasonable amount of
time to get to 105k miles. If the belt was changed in 2001, it was
probably 11-12 years old then, and perhaps done for that reason.
