It’s best to refer to the owner’s manual for exact mileage details regarding timing belt maintenance. Timing belts are made of rubber and should be considered a regularly scheduled maintenance item. If you are unsure of the need to replace the timing belt, we recommend consulting the mechanic for a diagnosis.
Note: Sea air can degrade rubber timing belts faster than usual.
Additionally, some vehicles have timing chains instead of timing belts. They are not considered a maintenance item like the timing belt (as they are made of metals) and may last up to 200,000 miles before needing replacement.
