1999 olds alero timing chain

I am looking to buy a 1999 olds alero. the owner says it has a broken timing belt (even though they have timing chains) I was wondering how much it would cost to replace this and if it is worth the money (the car is in nice shape and has 133,000 miles on it)

I would not buy that vehicle unless he can prove there is no internal damage to the engine. The repairs on it could exceed the value of the car....

1999 came with 2.4L and 3.4L both have timing chain only, if 2.4L timing chain broke more then likely it has bent cylinder head valve's.
