You don't say what the mileage is now. At 129000 miles, the timing belt should have been replaced at least twice - the last time being 9000 miles previous to purchase, give or take. At each replacement of the timing belt, the crank bolt should have been replaced. If servicing wasn't/hasn't been done, that's down to the owner(s). If it was done, you would have to consider how many miles you have put on it, who did the servicing and if it was done properly. Don't see any reason why, given what you have told us so far, that Kia could be expected to cover it. (Not to mention the sad fact that things do break over time.)
