GT 3.2 Cam belts
Quick opinion please.
I bought a 2006 GT 8 months ago from the Alfa dealer, and last month dropped it in for a service. She's 2nd hand,and has just tipped 42,000 Kms. they told me that it'd just be a fluid change and general check-up.
Taking the day off work, I drop the car off and hand the keys to he Service Dealer. He looked at his computer, and informed me that the Cam belts should be changed too.
Oh, a bit over 2 grand (Australian)
Not impressed, I replied, and thanked him for informing me beforehand, and also for selling me a car with a known service due (every 4 years...80 Kms )
Anyway, I just had the service alone ...and am budgeting the 2 or so large.
Please guys, can you offer an opinion of how the belts would be after 6 years?
Is it a 'time-bomb' or is this an over-reaction, considering it only has 42K on the clock?
