I just had a new serpentine belt put on my 2008 Nissan Altima. It only has 56,000 miles on it. Is that too early for a belt to go?

Not really. As a comparison on my 2006 Toyota I put one one my car at 61,000 when it began to show signs of age. Who knows? It may have gone another 20,000 or more but I didn't want to take any chances

the serpentine belt is a modern improvement over the practice of using three or four fan belts to drive engine accessories- 1 belt does the job- this means it works very hard to drive EVERYTHING and will degrade faster than regular V-belts- if it goes, EVERYTHING stops working and the car will be stuck- usually in the middle of nowhere- so spending the price of a belt to be on the safe side is a GOOD idea

Been there, done that with the serpentine belt going. That's why I had the new one put on. I was just questioning that it would start to go at just 56K, as opposed to 10 or 20K later.
