Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
The timing belt should be replaced to avoid the possibility of bent valves if the belt fails. This is normally performed as preventative maintenance when the vehicle has approximately 100,000 miles. However, to reassure Kia owners, I drove my own 2003 Kia Spectra 170,000 miles without performing this maintenance so I can attest to the durability of the factory belt.
It is a gamble to attempt to go beyond the normal service life of the timing belt.
