If you bought a 2014 car would you worry about the 5 year old belts. One issue no one has talked about yet, I think, is the length of timing belts. The longer the belt the slower (RPM) the belt will go. Long belts last 100K plus. Little shorties like the Chev Aveo use only suggest 50 to 60K. Do whatever will help you sleep at night.


Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.
