I bought this car last year with about 153k miles on it. I recently had a mechanic look at it, who said it seemed fine, but when had the timing belt been replaced, since--if it goes--the valves go with it, and then the car wouldn't be worth much of anything.
Unfortunately, I bought it from a dealer who didn't give me any record of maintenance.
Should I replace the belt now? The mechanic estimated approximately $700. A fair price?
have the same problem?
