It should last as long as the motor does. They will stretch over time but it takes a long time.

If you've been a good little owner and done your oil changes on schedule would expect 150,000 miles out of it...what will happen is the tensioner will plumb run out of tension...will sound noisy, like a folgers can full of marbles....then you MUST change it immediately...'cause once it breaks usually has collateral damage...usually cracking the timing case...it's okay, those are available too~

They last longer if you don't go around reving it to the redline all the time.

I drove a 1995 Sentra for more than 250,000 miles until someone crashed into my car. I never changed the timing chain on it.
