I have a 2008 EOS I bought used for my teenage daughter. We’ve have loved the car. The other morning she called and said it stalled on the way to work. We got it towed and were told the timing belt broke. Given she was at highway speed when it happened, I'm assuming the engine is pretty extensively damaged.
I'm wondering if replacing it with a used motor is worth it? Any tips from the wisdom in this community is welcome. I'm not mechanically inclined myself. Have a few mechanic buddies but they're not too excited about working on a VW.
Trying to find a qualified shop that won't gouge me is a challenge. This car also has a flood title from 2010 so the first import shop I took it to wouldn't touch it. That was before the timing belt issue.
Thoughtful advice is appreciated.
