    At what mileage should I get the timing belt replaced on my 2003 Tacoma?

    Changed mine at 106,000, and it still looked perfect. Toyota specs say every 90k.

    And it'll still look 'perfect' the day it breaks.

    It's the material you can't see that wears.....

    I recently checked mine out, because I wasn't sure if it was done or not, and it "looked" perfect, but one of the mechanics that I work with at the dealership said that "most timing belts will look "new" till the day they break! I have 105k now and I'm gettting ready to do it.
