Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara
I would think you service book sounds more correct than the shop quote you've been given. The camshaft and crankshaft gears should only require replacement when worn, and this wear can be seen with the naked eye or felt with a finger. There should be no indentation from the back to the front of each tooth.
If they want to change them, ask to be shown the parts as they remove the timing belt but before any other disassemble. Usually the wear is uniform on all the teeth. The idler bearing may also need replacing together with the timing belt.
