Customer Question
I would like to...

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the timing belt? Have you ever had to change it before?

It almost has a 100,000 km. and no never changed it. It

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '09 Hyundai?

Elantra Touring

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Elantra Touring yourself? What have you tried so far?

No we just would like to know. Cause we know its expensive and we don't have the money for it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

We would never do a big job like that either

Your timing belt is due to be changed at 116,000 mile and or 180,000 KM. If you are still at 100,000 miles then you have some time before you need to worry about changing it. See the Scheduled Maintenance for the belt in the link below.
