Timing chains really shouldn't deteriorate with time like a belt
generally does. I dont' think I'd be thinking about changing that
until at LEAST 60k miles, regardless of age. Of course I'd have it
inspected and would act on anything the inspection found that might
accelerate that schedule.
Are the H6's really scheduled for a new chain at 60k?
I've read that the chain is supposed to last for the life of the engine. I
believe I've read this in Subaru's "Drive" magazine or on their website.
FYI: My '02 VDC H6 Sedan is currently at 102,500; no problems
