timing belt replacement

Anyone recommend where to get a V8 timing belt changed in the Springfield Worcester Massachusetts or Hartford Ct. area. I'm willing to travel if someone can recommend a place that's reliable.

I've got an 05 V-8. I'm going through a timing belt change as we speak. I'm in Florida but it shouldn't be more than a thousand. It's 5.9hrs of labor on VW books. Call around until you find someone that is reasonable. The Kit is just over $200 on Amazon. If they are trying to charge you a lot for parts. Then find someone that will do it if you order parts yourself

Thats good advice, just be sure to ask the mechanic if they will still warranty the work if you provide your own parts. Some do, and some do not. It depends on how they feel about the parts you offer to bring in and their opinion on the source of those. Just a heads up.
