Re: Sick feeling in my stomach..
I would not panic too much, mine was absolutly fine. Didnt have mine changed until I reached 72k and now am on 113k and thinking about having my second belt etc but only due to the fact I need a variator too.
Timing belts can go on any cars at any time really, I think too much fuss is made about cars timing belts.
I had a toyota once that I did 120k on the origional timing belt and then sold the car.
Timing belts are like insurance policys, could save you a lot, could cost you a lot.
