Here's your answer, it has a timing chain. Theoretically, it should last the life of the car. Changing out the timing chain is a MUCH BIGGER DEAL THAN A TIMING BELT. I hope you won't have to do that. See attached picture.

Having a timing chain versus a belt usually means that you do NOT have to worry about it. Just regular recommended maintenance is all that is required.

Yes, this is correct and these chains "should " last the life of the vehicle, BUT, if you start hearing noise from the chain and rattling, you need to take care of this. Please be advised.

    Dealer has told me that my timing chain fell off. Not snapped. Is it worth it to get it fixed? They are telling me I need a new engine. Might be time for a new car?
