Should timing belt replacement be based on actual mileage or how old the vehicle’s belt is? Most vehicle maintenance in general mentions whichever comes first.
I’ll have to confirm in the user manual tomorrow, but seems the Hyundai recommendation (as offered by mechanic shop) says timing belt replacement at 48 months or 60k miles (37500 miles under severe conditions). I have a 2009 Hyundai Accent bought new from dealer (in another state).
The car only has bit over 26k miles now, and just went past 4 yr mark of usage. I’m just wondering should I have belt replaced when it hits near 60k (likely another 4 yrs or more) or is the part old enough to warrant replacement even though it hasn’t hit the mileage yet. I’m hoping replacing by actual mileage is ok & that that is the real recommended approach.
