The Timing belt is a vital component of any modern engine, it ensures that the moving engine components remain synchronised thus avoiding contact with each other. If the belt fails the damage to the engine would be costly to repair sometimes resulting in a replacement engine.
Timing belts are constructed from rubber based materials and so deteriorates over time even on low mileage cars.
The recommended maximum life of the Timing belt varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, however if you are not sure give us a call and we can advise you accordingly. If your car's Timing belt is due for renewal we would be happy to provide an estimate.
