36,500 miles, and mine is horribly cracked everywhere, and apparently it is only covered under warranty up to 15,000 miles. It's the 21st century, and belts don't last any longer than they did 40 years ago. This better not be the beginning of my car's mid-life crisis.

Nope, nothing aftermarket in that area, and probably never will be. I heard some bad stories about pulleys.

i can't verify them, but ihave neard that because they cause the accessories to spin faster, that the bearing will wear out faster. ALso i have heard people having cooling problems, due to the speeds the pumps spinning at. things like that

belts should be replaced every 2 years or 24000 miles if i'm not mistaken.
