Whoa!!!

The timing belt gets changed at 90 000 km, close enough to 60 000 miles,
according to the factory service schedules.  If the belt is not changed at
60 000 miles, it'd better been done earlier...

Ive seen more than enough failed belts :^(  in customers' cars, don't skimp
here!  Demand that it be done.
