are you talking in miles?? the timing belt does not need to be done that early nor should the water pump fail that early...

Yes, miles. Hyundai says it does need to be done at 60k in their maintenance schedule that came with the car.. Plug in 60000 miles and '08 Accent into this site:

and you get: "Replace Timing Belt" next to last on the list. Given the warranty and interference engine, I was not going to go longer. As to the WP, I agree it shouldn't fail that early, but it was dripping from the pulley shaft and going through a quart of coolant a month. Now it's tight again.

Having just picked up a 2009 Accent I can also confirm that the manual calls for a timing belt change ever 60k miles.

That seemed a little low to me but I'm not going to F with it and push it.

In my case with only 27,000 miles on a 4 year old car I've gotten the sense that I should do the timing belt at the 5 year mark (technically they say 60k miles or 60 months).

From what I've gleaned from others, the water pump should NOT need to be replaced that soon (though I'd do the pulleys with the belt)

In past vehicles (2000 Jetta TDI) I'd change both the pump and belt since the pumps were pretty cheap and it made sense to save on the labor (and they recommended it only every 80k miles) - but in this case with a water pump that will likely only have about 40,000 miles on it, I'm thinking I'm OK keeping the existing water pump - probably/hopefully until the next timing belt change at 100k miles.

your waterpump should be fine. ive read only one instance of someone who didnt change it at 60k and it started leaking around 90k. I am at 95k now and mines fine. if mine ends up leaking before 120k, whatever, i learned how to change the timing belt last time, its a fairly easy job once you learn your way around the car.

So just had the work done today happy to say the dent in my wallet was only minimal, a break down in prices was a followed:
279$ for timing belt change
80$ for all three other belts
And some brake work 40$
A grand total of 450$ with tax!

ok my bad. that just seemed very early, but if thats what the OM calls for i would get it done. i drive a LC accent, the change interval must be a bit longer. i also treat it like the piece of crap it is....i did the belt at 160k kms which is longer than the maintenance schedule by a bit, but i did regular checks on it to make sure the belt wasn't eating itself yet.

$450 for that job is quite good! sounds like you did alright!
