If an auto mechanic told you that replacing a timing belt needed immediate attention and it was going to cost more than $1,000, you might assume it’s a scam.
But unlike the shady mechanic who attempts to change your engine air filter every oil change, replacing the timing belt is absolutely crucial.
The timing belt is an integral part of your engine and, if it fails, so does your engine, causing your car to shut down.
You don’t want to be driving 100 kms per hour on the freeway if it broke. It’s definitely a safety issue.
