The timing belt interval is four years/60k miles in the U.S. (100,000 km).
If this four cylinder is the same engine that was used in the U.S., the
engine likes to eat timing belts, so definitely don't delay in replacing
it. Also, this automatic transmission was known for problems.
Additionally, most 1995 or so Sonatas I've seen recently are falling apart
all over. Be sure to use the overall condition of the vehicle as a guide.
If you'd like to respond with the VIN, I can probably get info on engine
