Question about 2005 Kia Sportage
I know on Honda they recommend a change of the timing belt every 80,000 mi.
The following is a lot of work to go through every 24,000 mi.
I checked autozone.com and it says to service and inspect every 30,000 mi.
It doesn't say to replace it every 24,000 mi. so I would say that he is incorrect.
If the timing belt shows signs of falling apart at the 30,000 mi. intervals then I would change it.
I think that 80,000 mi. is probably a good interval to actually go ahead and change the belt, based on my Honda experience, even though I don't have too much experience with the Kia timing belts.
