Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The timing belt in the Fiat 500 is recommended to be inspected every 60,000km (37,000 moles) and needs to be changed every 5 years or 120,000km (74,500 miles) intervals, whichever comes first. If the car is used under severe conditions (cold climates, city usage with prolonged running at idle speed), the recommended interval is every 4 years regardless of mileage. By the way, there is no belt on the 1.3L MultiJet diesel engine, it has an internal timing chain that doesn't need a replacement interval.
