Took Spectra into Kia service department to have timing belts replaced Tuesday. Car was at 64000 miles. I get it back and it starts making noises. Took it back to dealer and they said the water pump is now going out and it is purely cooincidental that it happened right after they worked on it. Never had any problems with the car before they had it. Was wondering if I could get some water pump feedback from other Spectra owners...when they went out and if the dealers story seems at all fishy. I'm looking at another 300$ part right after giving them 500$ to replace the belts. Thank you in advance.

One more thing, I was told by someone that the water pump should have been replaced when the timing belt was replaced. Is this stated in the Spectra's service manual?
