Timing belt

I have a 2007 Subaru Forester. I changed the timing belt at 80,000 mi. When is the next time to change?? Thanks JoeA

Looks like the factory recommends changing every 105,000 miles. I would make the next change between 160,000 and 180,000 miles, just to be on the safe side.

Recommended interval is 105K, but I would err on the safe side as that is an interference (aka valve-bender) engine. Your 80k is probably a good rule of thumb, so do it at 160k.
