Suzuki engines are particularly durable (they were one of the first companies to go back to using timing chains rather than the timing belts that are so often the Achilles heal of cars with small engines -- including many Hondas.) Again this only applies to engines Suzuki actually built themselves.
Huh. The more you know and stuff!

Thankfully my CR-V does have a chain instead of a belt... one of the things about it I actually like more than my poor Subie.
