Having looked on the Hyundai web site to find out about the crtd engine I have discovered that the crtd does not have a timing belt.
The timing is done by chain.
Which makes me ask why did the dealer quote me £390 for a belt that the car does not need.
Another reason to check things out before you leap in the deep end and get taken for an expensive ride!
Just checked Hyundai maintenace manuals for the Getz
Indeed, Hyundai recommends replacing the timing chain (and related parts) of the 1.5 CRDI engine, at 120,000 kms. Shorten that to 90,0000 if you consider you are mostly using vehicle under severe conditions. (Fast driving, hot and humid weather, dusty conditions, very short trips, trailer towing).
