2015 Volkswagen Golf - Loss of power

Lose of power after timing belt change

If you had it done have you asked them about this power loss ? Also 3 years seems a little soon for a timing belt change. You might say why that had to be done so the excellent mechanics here can make better suggestions.

The just reached 120000km. So I had to go for major service

Yes take it back. “Major service” should not reduce power.
