Yeah I would like to just get it checked first before buying, I know my car was built in June or July of 2012.

No Euro shops within 130 miles of my house. Same goes for VW Dealers. Pricing is about the same for the inspection. So just may take it to the dealer and have them inspect it. Go from there.

Tensioner revision is super easy to check yourself with a long flathead screwdriver, inspection mirror, and flashlight. Check out The Humble Mechanic's DIY Video. Hell, if you lived near me I would check it for you!

You can get a better look at the tensioner, ie don't need the inspection mirror, if you pull the passenger wheel, fender liner (a bunch of torx screws), and turbo outlet pipe (2 torx screws, hose clamp, and a wire clamp).

I have a 2013, so I'm ASSUMING it's ok, but I know I should check it.

Grab an inspection mirror and check it next time you change your oil.
