Re: How To Treat a Garage to Avoid Getting Conned?

As scenicDTi says - cambelts need replacing at specific mileage and/or time intervals.
The belts deteriorate over time so even a 5 yr old car with 50,000 miles on the clock will still need the belt changing, likewise a high mileage 3 yr old car would still need changing even though it isnt 5 yrs old.

Damaged cambelts can wreck an engine - so whilst the labour involved to replace these belts is time consuming, it is money well spent in the long run.
