David Sutton's went at 900 miles.  But it was the first time the car
had been moved for nine years.

Operating time (roughly expressed via miles) is not the only criterion.

Age is also important.  A 53k mile belt that's more than four years old
should be changed.  If it's more than six years old, it should be
changed before driving home.
