I don't know how many of the "public" know about cambelts on engines. Not all engines have them, but those that do need a new one after a certain number of miles or years. Recently I looked at two cars of the same model one with 60,000 miles and the other with 32, 500 miles, both were 6 years old. the manufacturer recommends that the cambelt be replaced at 54,000 miles or six years whichever comes earlier. The place selling the 60,000 miler had a service record but the cambelt had obviously not been done, but the salesman could only say "Its a one owner car, and its got a full service histroy." the first was irrelevant, and the second not stricly true. The lower mileage car was at the main dealer, and all they said when asked if they would do the cambelt was that it would cost 292 quid and they would look at the trade in on my car and "make an adjustment", in other words charge the buyer for the work. Obviously in both cases they want some sucker who falls for their flannel to come along and take these cars off their hands and the only risk they take is if the cambelt goes twang during their paltry three month warranty. I know of people who have had to scrap cars because the cambelt broke. Surely, both these "sellers" should be only selling avehicle that is fully roadworthy with an MOT, but also confroms to the manufacturers recommendations about this vital part of the engine.
