Volkswagen recommend a visual check(for this model) at the first 60,000 miles and then every 20,000 (replace if necessary). There is no manufacturer's recommended replacement interval. (Information gained from Autodata).
However most manufacturer's for the majority of models recommend a change at 72,000 or 5 years whichever comes first.
It is now known that a visual check is not reliable because the kevlar strands inside the belt break down over time and an indication of expected breakage is impossible to gauge.
Using the '72,000 or 5 year' advise, a belt change for anything older than a 2004 vehicle would be a good idea.
In money terms, a change of belt will cost 5 to 15% the cost of belt failure.
If you find this useful advise please rate.
