Yeah, i guess i can see that.

Timing Chains can also give out, the teeth wear down.

I think she will like the Milan. It's a great car. I'd concentrate more on the car, less on the chain/ belt thing. I think she will like the Milan.

I know it bothers y'all but it's just a make or break deal for us. We are in college and don't new a 500-700$ maintenance charge very 60-100k miles. Our money's goin to rent not timing belts lol. I know a girl she had 70k on the motor an was suppose to change it at 60k but didn't, it snapped and ruined the motor, she had to buy a new car. Granted it was a Chevy, but belts are belts.

Re: Gf is looking for a ford!

If she is looking for a really reliable car then, as much as i hate to say this... Toyotas have been known to last the longest out of all other car manufacturers... I'm just stating that fact, i personally hate all Toyotas.
