: Belts and Hoses Life?

11-24-07, 11:18 AM
I have an 04 V with 43K miles on it an live in Arizona with summer temperatures a little more extreme than most areas of the country. I am hoping the forum can help set my expectations. I am trying to estimate expenses for my V over the upcoming year or so and I was curious if anyone could give me an idea when to replace the belts and hoses (miles or years) to prevent a failure. Any input would be appreciated.

theres no set time really.......check for cracks in the belts...if none, let er ride.....hoses should be lasting 100,000+

I agree with Nikon.

I live here in AZ too. If you're ever on Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd......stop in and ask Mark Thomas the question. He's the Service Manager at Legends and a REALLY good guy. I've had work done there and am VERY Pleased. He's a "straight shooter."
