Hi,

Is there anything specific I should look for in a 150,000 km Mk7 Golf, NZ New, apart from Timing belt?
Also if I am replacing the timing belt what else should do at the same time, I have seen reference to water pump but that may have been a Mk6.

Any recommendations on a Golf experienced shop to do a pre-purchase inspection in ChCh?

Thanks, Phillip

McDoof:
Waterpump/thermostat housing are plastic so are common failure point. Although I'd expect at 150k that has been replaced in the past. That's the case on the 2.0 engines anyway.
See if you can get a warranty added for a reasonable price. Peace of mind for the next 3 years at least.
