2005 Hyundai Sonata Question: how much does it cost to change timing belt

cost related to changing timing belt -
Answer 1
You can get a estimate here www.repairpal.com/estimator its a good idea to have this done because this is a interference engine and if the belt breaks it will cause major damage to the engine -
Answer 2
it should not take more than 1/2 an hour of labor, and $20 for the belt. -
Comment 1
That labor estimate is very low, changing the timing belt can take several hours -
Comment 2
yes, there is no place that is going to change a Hyundai timing belt in half an hour. The cost to have my changed at the dealer was $700 (w/o the water pump). It will be $200-$300 more if they change the water pump as well. -
