I think I must share my experience. The last time the timing belt was replaced on my car (Corsa B 1.4 Swing 1993) was in 2004, and I got it changed today. Meaning after 9 years! The car drive 36,000KM during these 9 years, mostly short distances, and was rarely driven for more than 1.5 hours at a time. But the car was used almost every day! I read on so many forums like this, that the timing belt for Corsa B should be replaced after 4 years in any case. Well, this is certainly not true. I may have driven easily for two more years, but just got it replaced for safety. By the way, I live in North of Norway, where average winter temperature is -10 C, and average summer temperature is +10 C. So my advice to those who have Corsa B 1.4 Swing, and do not drive the car for long distances, should not worry about changing the timing belt for at least 7 years!
However, when you do replace the timing belt, I suggest that you get these parts replaced as well
-Complete timing belt kit, and not only the belt!
-Fan belt/dynamo belt/serpentine belt (whatever it is called on your car)
-Two Seals (front camshaft, and oil seal/axel seal) (not sure about the exact names of these seals, but ask the mechanic!)
