Patrick I know what the factory recomendation says about timing belt replacement. 60,000 is even to long. I have seen to many valves bent under 60K.

It seems ridicules any more to have timing belt as soon as 60k but that is the scheduled time interval and you are right I have seen them brake at less than 60k.
Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners.
You clearly do not know what you are talking about. The factory schedule maintenance for the timing belt is 60,000 miles. I have worked on many of these models and 60K is pushing it.
Alldata, Mitchell and Identifix all state 60,000 miles.
