Re: Cam/Timing Belt Change

Never been serviced in 3 years

Regardless of mileage the oil and filter should be changed at least every 12 months.

The timing belt should be changed every 60K or 5 years whichever comes first.

So unless you have service history to prove the belt has been changed in accordance with recommendations I suggest you have it done ASAP.

A major service wouldn't go amiss either plus has the brake fluid or engine coolant ever been changed.
