Drive belt... This is an inspection first at 60,000 miles or 72 months and then every 15,000 miles or 24 months after that. It states the drive belt should be replaced when cracks occur or tension is reduced excessively. Not sure what you were looking at that information is all there in the maintenance schedule section of the owners manual (this is from the 2013 Soul Owners Manual for the US).
It is used to drive the accessories like the AC/Alternator/etc..
This is the third "update" on an original Mazda engine design..
thus the "theta" name. If you maintain them they can easily go 300k miles.
The "beta" version is used in the Spectras 2004.5~2009.. Very reliable proven design as well as the transmissions.
Just keep your receipts and dates if any work was done "outside" of the dealership.. (like oil changes, lubrication,etc..) KIA will work with you "if" you have these...
