My Wife’s 2004 Outlander has 57,000 miles and at the recent oil change the dealer recommended I replace the Timing Belt at 60,000 miles. I am not oppossed to this but is $300 a good price? Also the dealer stated the front brakes were at 3mm at what interval should they be replaced?
What does your Owner’s Manual have to say about timing belt replacement?
A typical interval nowadays is 105,000 miles or 7 years–whichever comes first. On an elapsed time basis, you are probably now due for this maintenance.
Read your Owner’s Manual!
Is $300 a good price?
In fact, it is almost too good to be true.
If the dealer is really charging that amount, I suggest that you jump at the opportunity.
However, you should realize that when you add in the recommended water pump replacement, serpentine belt replacement, and replacement of all belt tensioners, the price will climb.
As to your brakes–they are getting thin and should be replaced soon.
