10 yrs or 100k. I've done 120k without a cambelt change - may break tomorrow may not - but then its 300 to change on a car that's about to fall apart - so I'm not changing it.

What I would like to know is who had the idea to use cam belts - what's wrong with chains?

If you ever heard a 1 litre corsa or ford ka engine you would not need to ask that question

Yeah exactly that, was an one of the families cars and was needed sharpish so it ended up at dealers, then found out it's a common one on them. Put me off Nissan there and then!

Many many years ago I used to own a Vauxhall Viva HB with a OHC engine. This was the first car I had seen that was belt driven. In those days I think the belt had to be changed every 40,000 miles or something ridiculous. Things have thankfully improved. Chains can wear or stretch too.
