Why does the belt need changing at 48k miles? And where can I get it done for $300!

I am not a body shop expert, but his "dent" looks like a full on collision/accident that would cost more than $1,000.

I cannot figure out if this guy is for real or trolling...

lol @ 300 for timing belt job. That doesn't even cover labor. He probably saw one of those $300 timing belt ads in the pennysaver for most 4 cyl cars and thinks a Subaru would qualify.

Subaru recommends the timing belt on these cars be done every 105k or 9 years. This is just to cover there asses. Those belts can go 200k and 20 years. Who has the ***** to find out? I don't. Just did mine on my 05 STi with 59k. Only cost me about 250$. All oem parts. I am a mechanic that works at a dealer though..

All oem parts at wholesale cost and it still cost you $250 doing the labor yourself. So how does that guy get it done for $300 total? I also wrench/smog for a living btw.

Well see he's apparently got quite JDM hook up or some tweeker that will do it fo crack money. I don't know where he got that number. Probably pulled it out of his *** but his head is obviously still stuck up there. All jokes aside I'm a licensed smog tech too! Always nice to meet a fellow inspector. Working on getting my repair license right now

I'm not sure about 200k/ 20yrs but I do not honestly know, and parts seem to go a little longer these days. When I was younger, the interval on cars like my Prelude, 300ZXT, Sentra and most other things was was 60k miles. I have experienced timing belt failure at speed in 3 cars in my life. 1st was an '84 Prelude at 130k miles in 1995, next was 1984 300ZXT (Z31) in 2002 at 92k miles, and the latest, my 1993 Subaru Justy at 140k miles in 2012. Luckily, the Z and the Justy are non-interference engines. Not sure how I got so lucky!

My '02 WRX has 67k miles on it, and I will probably do the belt pretty soon. That car has has a pretty hard life, and it was sold new in 2001. I inspected the belt on my 1993 Justy and it did not have an cracks or anything, but basically the belt was so dry that teeth started falling off of it while I was driving through SF traffic. When I had the belt out, I could flick other teeth off.

I have another Justy, a '91, which is just about to hit 100k miles, and I had the belt done in 2006 at 49k miles. Mostly because a Justy is one of the few cars that you can do a belt pretty easily and without even touching the water pump. I bet you could do a Justy timing belt on the side of the road if you had to, and as long as there were no problem with the crank woodruff key (this is common).

Very nice 06 btw. Can't believe you have one with 40k. Oh and I just did my timing belt at 111k on my 06 wrx.

Wait...44k miles?! Seriously?! How is it that same year rolling chassis/blown engine cars sell here for $12k but clean examples like this get no interest?!
