2001 Volkswagen Jetta QuestionsWhen has this car been recalled? Has it ever been recalled? (1 answer)
I had my motor mounts replaced a few weeks ago and then last weekend my car started making noise under the hood. My mechanic said I need to replace the timing chain. I was wondering if the motor mount replacement and the timing chain failure are related.
How much should the timing chain repair cost. I have a V6. Thanks.

Volkswagen has recalled certain 1999-2002 Jetta and 1998-2002 Beetle models because a brake light switch may malfunction if incorrectly installed during a safety recall. This can cause the brake lights to become inoperative or remain on. Dealers will install the newly designed brake light switch free of charge.
