      The startup of these engines when cold always sounds a bit rough for 10 seconds or so. If it sounds like that when hot, yeah, you are a candidate for the timing chain guide problem.....

      190,000 on my 05/2 Jetta. Had to replace engine, which has 117,000 on it now. Pretty much everything on this car that was expected to fail has failed, and I probably will never buy another one again.
