Oops. Upon further review, the 2011 touring model does have a belt. Other Elantra are timing chain.
Hard to understand why Hyundai kept that old technology so long.
They say 60K. But 90K seems more common. If you have no oil leaks up high and good maintenance, you should be OK. But do an inspection now for sure.
The 60k interval is surprising to hear since my Focus was 120k. How does the belt look and feel? On a car this age I would expect the belt to be in good shape so I would probably stretch the interval and watch the belt. One other thing to consider. Does this car have interference engine? I don't know the answer but that knowledge will help your decision making process.
Yes, this engine is old technology. It's a carry over engine from the Kia line.
Anyway, I can't do an inspection on the timing belt unless I dismantle part of the motor...the timing belt is sealed inside a housing.
