How do you know when the recall has been done on your car? Is there a sticker or something that they put on the inside of the hood? I have a 2001 that I just bought a couple of months ago from a salvage yard. It had been fully reconditioned but was there for most of 2004.

I believe that I heard 60,000 miles on the timing belt. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I don't have an owner's manual.

60k on timing belt, If you dont get a Kia Timing belt get a gates, nothing else is worth a damn. Stickers go under the hood on the sidewalls or firewall or hood itself. They usually fall off from the heat tho. Call the dealership with your vin and they can run it for you.
