Having problems with your 2006 Volkswagen GTI ?

I just had serpentein belt changed- then noticed another noise like squeeking noise right after starting car and also when reving engine or giving more gas. It is very specific to starting and accelerating. Mostly it begins only after warming up

Sounds as though the belt is slipping. You should have a tension pulley to take up the slack. I'd take it back to the shop and let them know it is slipping. The more it slips, the slicker the belt will get and the more it will slip until eventually, it will burn, tear and will have to be replaced again.

Make sure they don't just spray it with belt dressing as that is a temporary fix. The tension must be correct. If you paid for the service, make sure they do it correctly.
