    Belts or chains? Now you got me confused! You asked what type of timing components it has , then you ask about the belt(s) after I said it had chains? Do you mean , now , the accessory drive belt? Yes , that would need to be changed at certain points. A visual inspection would be a determining factor in that. The chain set-up for the timing , I would imagine is for the life of the vehicle , IF well maintained 3-5K MAX on oil change intervals (my opinion) regardless of what manufacturer or dealer states. ALWAYS use he best grade oil & filter(OEM) again , in my opinion. Good luck.
