    Look for the arduous use schedule. I will see if my contact will send the bulletin.

    The "3.0 TDV6 Models to 11MY Arduous" Maintenance Check Sheet shows:
    91k Renew front and rear camshaft timing belts, tensioners and tensioner bolt (Every 4 years).

    So, under arduous conditions, every 91,000 kms or four years.

    Under the standard use schedule it says 182,000 kms or seven years.

    I'd be interested in what the bulletin says. My car has is up to 94,000 kms and nearly six years. Mostly long trips, some serious mountain work, not much towing, not much city driving. I was planning on doing the timing belts towards the end of next year (7th) along with a coolant change. Might bring both forward if that's what the bulletin recommends.

    Which therefore begs the question: What is classified as "arduous useage"??
    High ambient temps?
    Frequent high revs?
    Frequent cold ambient temps?
    or what...?

    The list of what constitutes "arduous conditions" seems to cover everything you can do to a vehicle. Probably gives LR an out for most warranty claims when something breaks.
    Sometimes I wonder why I bother......

    Domestic triangle kills vehicles.
    Really the only longevity for a vehicle is long easy running not towing.
    Plenty of time for the engines etc to warm up, burn off condensation etc.

    Same with batteries - those getting the longest lives from batteries are those driving longer distances regularly with less frequent starts.

    Absolutely. And when you think about it, it's obvious that spending time in the bush (frosty mornings, river crossings, steep climbs as engine warms up, mud etc.) will be taxing on the car and clearly "arduous", yet the daily commute can be as bad or worse, particularly if you live in a hilly environment like, say, Wellington or parts of Sydney and particularly if the car never really gets to warm up.
    I've implemented a service schedule that is a sort of hybrid between the normal and arduous schedule and is specific to my car and the type of work it does. My D4 is clearly over-serviced and if I was a mechanic suggesting the same routine for a customer I'd be accused of gouging!
