Well, my timing belt failed and it costed me an INSANE amount of money because not only did I need a new timing belt, all of my valves bent. Now I am stuck with the decision of paying for a valve job or putting a whole new engine in it. Take my advice, get the timing belt done ASAP when you get a TT!
As a preventative step I replaced timing belt etc. To avoid future costly repairs!
