Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe
DOES THE TIMING BELT NEED CHANGING ON A V6 SANTA FE
The manufacturer recommended timing belt replacement interval is 60,000 miles. Some people will tell you that you can go 65k-100k miles, but if you do and it breaks, the consequences could be much greater.
Why not be safe and change it, especially as it's 7 years old now.

Do you want to replace the Go to belt yourself? Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

SOURCE: 2003 Santa fe timing belt change
You can drive it till it breaks of course, that will cost much more then replacing it as maintenance though. I would plan to have it changed much sooner then later as you are already past your recomended service time.

Carfixer 1 is right. The Hyundai engine is called an interference engine, which means that when the timing belt breaks, it will allow the valves to hit the pistons and you will ruin your engine.
Do yourself a favor and replace the belt at recommended intervals. If you are past the 60k mark, have it done right away and save yourself a lot of grief and expense.
