I had the same question about the timing belt.I asked the Nissian Dealer and they said 105,000 for the first major tune-up, timing belt included. It is so high because there is no timing belt it is a chain and gear on the 2006 Sentra. I just hit 103,000 with no problems at all except on things i thought i was doing for preventitive maintanace like the belt idler pulley which flew off going down the frwy. 500 miles after I had it replaced. I would recomend normal oil changes and leave the rest alone until 100,000 miles. - esctech
