Question DetailsAsked on 5/7/2015

Should I replace the timing belt on my 2010 Hyundai elantra if the car has just 16,000 miles on it?

I have not had any problems with the car but when I took it to the dealer for a recall service they said I should have the timing belt changed.

I could not get the Hyundai maintenace schedule website to come up for me, but several mechanic blogs on the web say 60,000 mile with extreme driving condition service, 90,000 miles for normal service.

It may be that this belt is not covered under the new car warranty - have to check your warranty for your car, but if they don't replace it free if it needs replacement at 16,000 miles Hyundai should be kicked back across the Pacific pond ! That is definitely a factory defect if needs replacing in that time.
