haha, frightening to buy a car from someone that does not know the difference between chain and belt.  Wonder how much they really want for it?  Only $1?

We take for granted all that we know about our cars.  This person probably was lucky just to remember "Timing" and has no idea what it is as long as the dealer did it.

LOL, I was so paranoid about timing belts that when I got my land cruiser, I asked all over the boards about when to change it and everyone was laughing saying: "you don't need to change it.  It's a chain and should only need to be adjusted."

Now why can't VW/Audi use chains again?  Sheesh!

They do Dub, the new (as in 2009) 2.0T's are timing chains I believe.

you are correct, longer life, lower service costs.  VW is doing this as well, since it is the same engine.  That makes the reliability even more attractive for the GTI, etc.
