    My daughters 2002 Elantra was nearing 60000 miles, so I called around to a
    few Hyundai dealers to see what they charged. The one that had quoted me
    $400 a couple of months back had upped it to $460. Most were around $450
    +/- 30 bucks. However Antwerpen Hyundai in Clarksville, Md. gave me a quote
    of $230! After recovering , I immediately made an appointment for a couple
    of days later. I could not have even got it done at an independent shop
    (after adding in $90 for Genuine Hyundai belt) for that price. I even let
    them charge me $60 for the three drive belts, about $35 more than I would
    have paid for aftermarkets at most Auto parts store. My daughter lives in
    Laurel, so Clarksville is only 10-15 miles away.
    Anyway, if anyone that lives nearby and is coming up on a timing belt
    replacement soon, it may be worth your while to do it now, cause I believe
    that is a special they are promoting (I didn't ask any questions).
    And yes they did a good job.
    P.S. thanks to HyundaiTech for responding to my earlier post.

    That might even be worth the drive from NJ. My wife's 2002 Elantra is due
    for a timing belt in the near future.

    This is a really good post - even though it's a bit too far for me to take
    advantage of it from Syracuse, NY. Good info - thanks for sharing this.

    That's a fantastic price. Good catch.

    $300 for the timing belt on a 99 elantra plus all serpentine belts (dealer),
    and we dont even have a steady connection with that dealer.
