    We at Subaru Clinic recommend you replace your timing chain at 105,000 miles.

    I ask a Subaru dealership mechanic about my timing chain system.
    The timing chain is good for the lifetime of the engine. You never need to change it.
    It does depend on good lubrication so make sure you keep up your oil changes and it should be just fine.
    However; if you have a timing belt.
    Subaru recommends that it be replaced every 105,000 miles +/-
