How often should I change the timing belt on my car?

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. 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 needed replacement.
