Default 2011 2.5x Timing chain

I have had my 2011 Forester for a couple of weeks now and while reading the manual I cannot recall timing chain change interval. My salesman had said 105K miles but from what I understand that is for the timing belt on the old engine. So what is the interval for changing timing chain on the 2011 2.5X?

Subaru's Drive magazine had an article about it which says that it's permanent!

Yea
One of the reason to have this forum is to avoid advices from this kind of salesman.....

chain can be stretched and almost never broken. BMW and VW have timing chain for long time.

Should last about as long as the motor. Though my 96 Nissan 240sx had to have it done at 70K. It was making all kinds of noises, but that's the exception (The nissan mechanic was extremely surprised). Ford and Chevy have been using chains for decades but those ole motors wouldn't even last as long as a Suby T-belt anyways! HA!
