Hello I will help, Your 2.0 L engine has a timing belt that needs to be replaced every 60,000 miles or 100,000 kMs. I would wait until 7 years to be replacing this one. If you have the 1.6L engine it has a timing chain which should last the life of the engine. Please let me know how I can help Thank you
