    My book shows 90,000 miles is the mileage that the timing belt requires replacement and you can get a estimate here http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=4267 and locate a shop near you here http://repairpal.com/directory?address=85255&car_bran...

    Thank you so much, hemicuda!! And for the repair shop info too. Is there an instance the timing belt could go bad at 58,000 miles? We live in Scottsdale (desert-land), but usually do not travel dirt roads. Any thoughts? This is my 72 yr old mom's car - she has kept all maintenance must dos. debbianne

    Is extreme weather its always better to change the belt early because if it breaks it will cause major internal engine damage
