As euromodder mentioned, this is becoming a non-issue with alot of newer vehicles. 150k+ intervals means that most vehicles will only have their timing belt/belts & water pump replaced once in their lifetime. When you break down the cost of replacement parts/labor per mile the cost is pretty small compared to consumables like fluids, tires, batteries, etc.

I agree with you in principal, but there are so many other things that tick me off about the OEMs that this one is pretty minor.
