I own a 2002 Kia Rio. Apparently the dealer that sold me my car was "lacking" in the information department. We were never told, or given any information that we were to change the timing belt at 60,000. Now at 74,000 the belt has "stretched" and the engine is totally shot. They quote me 4,100 for a new one.

I think this should be covered under the 100,000 warranty. But here's the question. Has Kia covered anyone's repair to their engine if the timing belt broke or stretched after 60,000 miles? I am looking for any documentation that may help me force Kia to cover this under their warranty.

The more information I can get, the better!
