Yes, it's the same basic engine. I think this thread arose due to another
where I commented on timing belt durability.
In any event, I've never seen a 3.5 (or the similar 3.0 in the 2001 XG)
timing belt break or strip. I do seem to recall hearing of a couple
cases, but I don't think they were anywhere near the maintenance interval.
