Just bought this car. Now I learn that I've got to worry about a timing belt at 60,000. Why? I never had to replace a belt/chain on all of my previous American cars. Is it because it's a belt? Why didn't Hyundai use a chain?

all imports used a belt because of noise. if you neglect to change it and it breaks, you will be looking at a bill of about 1800-2000.
