Question about Kia Carens
I need to know at what milage the cam belt, if it has one, must be renewed.
Check the timing cover and if it is plastic it will be a belt operation. If it is aluminium and sealed off then it will be a chain. Belts are recommended for a change at 60.000 miles (100.000 klms) but this depends on driving conditions ( constant high rpms) and oil on the belts ( oil reduces the servicability of a rubber belt considerably)

The recommended interval for changing the timing belt is in the owner's manual. Generally, this is every 60,000 miles.
P.S. I found the data on the internet and, it is indeed 60,000 miles.

The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.

Most belt companies will say 60,000 to 80,000 miles for timing belts.
