Try doing one in a 96 accord. 2 belts, timing and balance belt. Took me 7 hours. Honda wanted $1300 to do it...

I can do the one on my 2004 Subaru in under an hour, the dealership wants over $500.

mitsubishis have 3 on some of their little 4 cylinders. bmw e30s use one and so do the old isuzu troopers.

its funny, the only time bmw ever tried the belt on an engine and its the best selling bmw ever made in history. that belt is the one downfall for the model and htey removed it and went back to a chain for the next model 3 series which never sold as well.
