2007 Hyundai Sante Fe 6cyl 3.3 eng. Serpentine drive belt. on 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe

My drive belt was changed by Hyundai service after telling me it was beginning to crack when I had about 18,000 miles and 2 1/2 years of driving. Now about 2 1/2 years later and 22000 more miles they recommend the same thing. Change the serpentine drive belt because it is beginning to show cracks. This is NOT the timing belt. Are they taking me for a ride or do Hyundai drive belts have such a short life span. Car is driven locally and on highways but has only 41,000 miles and purchased new in September 2007. Thankyou for any suggestions

Could be...get a second opinion from another shop. Get reccomendation from friends or coworkers of a shop they suggest to take a look at it for you.

Find another place to have your vehicle fixed!! That's a bunch of BS on the belt. THEN AND NOW!!!!

Thankyou. I have already had a second opinion and got the same answer you gave --exactly the same.
