90-115,000 the timing belt must be checked, and if shows
wear and tear replaced. Frank (my mechanic) said that when
he did the 115,000 the timing belt was in great condition,
so he did not change it." 
Yikes. And to think I thought it would be fun to take a road
trip home from SF to Seattle in a new (to me) car. Images of
being stuck in Redding with bent valves....

Oh  boy, if this is indicative of the care the car has received, I would  keep looking....  If her mechanic can look at a belt and determine  it looks fine, I am going to ask him to pick lottery numbers for me. ;-)
