An Ignorant Man Asks
Hi, I'm ignorant.
I'm considering buying a 2007 SX4 (1.6 Diesel) with over 100,000 miles on the clock and I asked the seller (a used car dealership) if the car had ever had a new cambelt/chain or water pump.
The dealership replied "According to mytimingbelt.com the cambelt is due at 144,000 or 14 years."
This sounded a bit unlikely, so I checked mytimingbelt.com and sure enough that's definitely what it says. But to how great an extent is it realistic?
And is it a chain or a belt?
And what's the water pump renewal situation?
Man, am I ignorant.
(Any other tips re. what to expect to have to replace at 100,000 miles would be much appreciated. Many thanks.)
