Timing change replacement

Like to know when some of you had problems with your timing chain. At what kilometers or miles did you needed to replace it.

I've heard that oil changes should not be more than 8000 km's, some say 5000 with these engines.

If you use a good quality synthetic oil,I can see 8000 or more, depends on your preference. But if you use conventional oil then yes 5000 kms.
Synthetic at 5000 could get expensive.
I do mine about 8000 kms

So you are using synthetic.

2006 and 2007 V6 engines timing chain will stretch no matter what, it's a well known issue that was corrected in the 2008 and onwards models.

But I heard that it still a problem, I guess with extended oil changes it definitely is a problem. Correct me if I am wrong but going with the olm is a no no.

They will stretch over time no matter what. With 3 chains it's bound to happen.
