John Green, Do a search for posts on belts, you'll find one by Taz on the 24th of January that has the Tech Bulletin that recommends belt changes every 3 Years or 30K miles, whichever comes first.
There are some who agree with you that changes that often are un-necessary. However, I suspect most of them are not owners. Most owners here seem to feel that whether or not frequent changes are necessary, they are unwilling to accept the risk of exceeding the factory recommendations. I can tell you that Josh will have my car on the last day of the third year. To me, it's a small price compared with the risk of a failed belt and the resulting catastrophic engine failure.
In the end, it all comes down to risk management.
Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.
