It has a belt and the replacement interval is 105,000 miles. I'd get the timing area inspected though, make sure there are no oil and coolant leak. Here is the 70,000 mile service: 70000 MI or 112000 KM Inspect: Air Bag Systems Check the air bag system every 12 months, regardless of mileage. Check function / damage. Battery Brakes and Traction Control Check for damage/leaks, thickness of pads and brake fluid level. Shift Interlock, A/T Check operation including park/neutral position switch. Washer Fluid Check fluid level, add if necessary Replace: Engine Oil Oil Filter, Engine Rotate Wheels Rotate front to rear Good luck with your new car! Zee
