      Timing Belt on XC90

      Hello all,
      a quick search did not show anything related to my question. We have an '06 XC90 2.5 with a little over 80k miles and we do have the VIP warranty. I was wondering if a new timing belt falls under our warranty or is that not covered?
      Now if not covered what is the best way to go about when our regular service interval is due?
      Thanks for your help!

      I would suspect it is considered a wear item... Best way is to change it your self if so inclined, or take it to your favorite shop. Cant
      think of many other choices.

      If the belt fails before its prescribed change interval, then your damages will be covered. However, if it fails after and you have not changed it, then you wold be on your own, as far as repairs are concerned.

      VIP warranty will not cover the replacement cost of the timing belt, if that's what you were asking (although I suspect you were not).
