    Default 3.0 V6 Cdti - Belt or Chain?

    As per title...

    is the timing for this engine chain or belt driven?

    If belt, what approx mileage would it be recommended to change it at?

    cheers

    er, um, the info I have says 10 years or 100K miles
    However, that doesn't match the service intervals of 2 years and 30K miles!

    I'll need to contact VX again and get a definitive answer in writing

    Anyone who goes the full 100k on an expensive-to-repair unit like the V6 DERV is just asking for it IMHO.
