Dublin Auto Repair has now merged with EDGE Motorworks in Dublin, CA. I'm a partner at Milt's Service Garage in Vallejo, CA and Contra Costa Auto Service in Concord, CA. All my ASE Certified facilities are staffed with ASE Master Technicians that perform general services and repairs on all makes and models. For piece of mind you have a 24 month/24K mile warranty on all repairs we complete. Our philosophy is very simple: Provide our customers with the best solution to the problem presented! We diagnose the failure and determine what type of repair is needed to get that vehicle back on the road. We provide towing, shuttle service and no interest financing. Maintenance costs far less than a repair so we perform a free courtesy inspection on every vehicle we see so our customers can remain informed.

Your car needs service Frank. Take her to someone before huge money problems surface. We see it all the time when people won't service the higher end European vehicles and then can't afford the repairs.

Question Answered: 

Mileage is only one part at 90K miles, time is the other. You only get about 6 years out of a timing belt before you risk failure and an ruined engine When replacing the timing belt on the V6 you should replace the water pump as well. Timing belt kits are now sold with a water pump, idler and tensioner pulley plus the timing belt. It takes 4 hours to replace and does cost about $850-1000 depending on additional parts like new serpentine belts, plugs, wires, air, cabin filters...The dealer will tell someone one over the phone that the job is far less expensive then lower the boom when they turn over the keys. No surprise there.
