Mitsubishi Lancer 1997: When should the timing belt be replaced?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 May 2005

CHANGE the belt. The reason Mitsubishi and other carmakers specify kilometres or months is because some drivers don't do many kilometres. Belts deteriorate over time, so I would recommend you change the belt and avoid the possibility of a breakage.

What is the best medium sized car on the market?

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Feb 2004

Your need for a 1998 or later model for $10,000 makes things difficult. I would recommend you try a Nissan Pulsar N15 which was introduced in 1995 -- it's well built, reliable and has good resale value.
