    normally is...but i'm not sure what the age is on these belts..but i'd guess no more than 5 yrs..

    I'd never let a belt do more than 35,000 whatever the manufacturers say.. it's just too far to let one go IMO, and a belt is cheaper than a new engine.

    If servicing costs are an issue on buying a car, then i wouldn't have the 3ltr over the 1.9 as the bits for the 3ltr are horrifically dear.. I mean thirty quid for an oil filter!!

    I can do a V6 service on my 3.2 for the price of that filter alone..
