I've heard 60,000 miles to 100,000. Another said 90,000 miles before the change. Which is it for the Timing Belt? I live in California. I'm not sure why but our timing belts on the Kia are supposed to last that long. Maybe more freeway driving?
I have an 04 sorento with 108k and i am just now having the belt replaced, when i pulled it off it still looks brand new no cracks or scarring, i am the only owner it had 19 miles on it when it was bought.
Pup , I live in KY.

Timing belts do need to be changed at mileage intervals set by the manufacurer. 60,000 miles sounds about right. Failure to change it may cause it to wear out and fail. Should that happen, you can cause serious damage to the engine up to needing a replacement. Look in your owners manual and it should give you the "service intervals".
The timing belt of the car is to be changed after it has run 60000 miles. Try to change it once it is approaching the 60000 miles, if not it might damage the entire engine and it will cost You a lot more to replace the engine than replacing just the timing belt.
If You need the steps to replace the timing belt, You can call back for more assistance. I will be so glad to be of assistance to You once again.
It has a timing belt, Kia recommends, checking every 30,000 miles and replacing every 60,000 miles, this is an interference engine, which, piston to valve damage will occur in the event of timing belt failure.
For California models recommended at 105,000 miles.Belt needs to be inspected at 60,000 and 90,000, miles and replace at 105,000 miles. Except California replace at 60,000 miles. Note 1.8L engine is a interference engine, if timing belt goes bad will cause major internal engine damage.
