Service on car out of warrantee - catalyst2
I have a Mazda Tribute, great car but as it's 3 1/2 yrs old and out of warrantee (we did not opt for extended warrantee option) we're looking at getting it serviced, etc. by independent Mazda garage in Northumberland or Tyne and Wear. Has anyone here got any suggestions/names of garage?

And should we now have an oil/filter change every SIX months? (instead of previous o/f change by dealership every year - we do 10,000 miles/yr in it)

Also, what's the timing belt like on this car (belt or chain?). I guess that has to should really be changed after 4 yrs regardless of supposed reliability of car, am I right? (car has 30,000 miles)
