if car was not serviced, and the belt snapped, overheating
the engine, they can reject you. but try hard and win.

Yes, If the timing belt brakes or skips several teeth. The 2.0L Suzuki engine pistons will and do hit the valves under that condition. You should change that belt at 100-120k miles. You can start by R&R the timing belt and setting everything back to specs, Do a compretion test - that will be your awnser. Low or no compretion + bent valves. The cheepest fix is a certified used low milage motor - put your new timing belt on the used motor for good measure.
They have been doing well and there problems are fewer than most. Sounds like you have a pretty good car. Have those trouble codes checked and repaired though so it does'nt cause problems down the road. Good luck.
