Question about 2001 Mazda 626
You should replace your timing belt as regular maintenance. I usually will let the belt go to 80k for the 1st one. The rest of the time, I recommend replacing it every 60k. The reason being is that the factory timing belt is much superior to the replacement belts. I don't like to push the belt to it's absolute limit because if it breaks while you're driving the car, expensive engine damage may occur. I consider it "cheap insurance".
