Most original equipment coolant hoses made of EPDM should easily last up to 10 years or more in normal service. So why should customers expect anything less from an aftermarket replacement hose?
The 60,000/90,000-rule is always a good idea. Start the belt and hose inspection process as early as 60,000 miles. A good opportunity to do this is at every oil change as oil changes are much more frequent than coolant changes. And then plan on hose replacement at 90,000 miles or at least give it consideration.
