When to replace the Santa Fe's timing belt?

I have just taken on a 2.2 Hyundai Santa Fe with over 99,000 on the clock; when do I need to replace the timing belt?

Answer

Hi George,

The 2012-2018 Santa Fe 2.2 used a timing chain. The model before that used a timing belt in its 2.2-litre diesel engine and the change intervals for it are 160,000 kilometres (100,000 miles) or 10 years - whichever comes first. If your car's belt has never been done then you really should look at getting it done as soon as you can.
