Does my Ford Kuga need a new belt now?


I have a 2015 Ford Kuga 1.6 with 89,000km on the clock. It's due for its annual service and the Ford Service Centre has suggested that I replace the timing belt during this service. Is it necessary at this stage?

Regards, Wilstan

Hi Wilstan,

Assuming you mean the 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, our information is that the belt should be changed every 200,000km or 10 years, neither of which applies to your car.
