2006 Volkswagen Jetta Question: Timing Belt or Timing Chain

I was informed the 2006 VW Jetta has a timing chain, not a belt, and does not need to be replaced at 80,000 miles. Can I relax and know it is indeed a timing chain which does not need to be replaced? -
Answer 1
That is correct, the 2.5L 5 cylinder engine on the 2006 Jetta are driven by a Timing Chain, there is no need to replace it under scheduled maintenance intervals. It is very important to keep the Engine Oil and Filter well maintain. -
Answer 2
