    5 years regardless of mileage, make sure the tensioner so are changed as well, also check the condition of the water pump.

    I replaced mine last year at only 9K miles, but 5 years old, including the water pump, did not really need replacing, but it was prudent to do it while stripped out. Peace of mind really.
