    The 2008 Sonata has the Theta engine which has a chain.

    A belt is cheaper and quieter but has to be replaced every 60k miles.
    A chain is more expensive, makes a little noise but will generally last the life of the engine.

    What should be replaced at 100K? Certainly not a timing chain! Those last the life of the engine.
