2005 Hyundai Sonata Question: Timing belt



, 2.7L V6, Palmetto, FL, November 10, 2010, 19:57

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.

    Noise? Could you please go into that in a little more detail? Noise? To me, that's ludicrous. Why are they concerned with noise and American car makers aren't?
    Thanks, Roy. I'm in Palmetto, Florida.
