I have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata. It has just reached 60,000 miles. Should I have the timing belt changed, even though there are no problems? My dad was a car mechanic, and now he is fixing cars in heaven, but every once in a while I will dream about something (he really taught me a lot, and would call me when he knew stuff had to be done and say, “Get the oil changed this week,” or “Check your brakes this week”). I keep having a recurring dream about the timing belt. What do you think? Thanks. — Kate
