Timing Belt on 2008 Kia Sportage

It is highly recommended that the timing belt is replaced on the 60,000mile scheduled maintenance, why is that not included in this estimate?

Is that in the owner's manual as a part of the maintenance schedule? Sometimes they are and sometimes they aren't.

I recommend looking at the timing belt estimate separately and adding the totals. There will not be much overlapping labor or parts cost.
