I would have no issue with a timing belt engine as long as its a non-interference motor. Unfortunately most modern engines are interference type. My old chevy (suzuki) sprint is non-interference so when that belt breaks put on a new one and back in business, but lots of people have wrecked their valves on other motors because people don't get the belt changed in time and then when it goes you have a huge shop bill to R/R.

I checked BEFORE I bought my versa, and believe you me if the versa used a timing belt and an interference design engine I would not have bought one based on that one strike alone.
