Just bought a VW Jetta with a 2.0L engine and 69,000 miles.. Does this engine have a timing belt or chain and when does VW RECOMMEND replacement

It has a belt and the replacement interval is 105,000 miles.
I'd get the timing area inspected though, make sure there are no oil and coolant leak.
Here is the 70,000 mile service:
70000 MI or 112000 KM
Air Bag Systems
Check the air bag system every 12 months, regardless of mileage. Check function / damage.
Brakes and Traction Control
Check for damage/leaks, thickness of pads and brake fluid level.
Shift Interlock, A/T
Check operation including park/neutral position switch.
Check fluid level, add if necessary
Oil Filter, Engine
Rotate front to rear
Good luck with your new car!
thank you...this is very helpful
