I took my 2007 Hyundai Sonata in today for the 60k mainteance and requested that they replace the timing belt & water pump. I was told I have a timing chain and it's not serviceable and the the water pump would cost me additional $545 on top of the $409 for the 60k mainteance. Is it true about the timing chain and are they robbing me with these prices. He said the pump is $200 and the labor for the pump is the $345! I'm so worried that they are pulling something over on me. Please help.

If you have a chain they usually last as long as the engine and do not normally have a service interval, it is the chain guides and internal tensioners that fail and then you should replace everything. So as long as the pump is not leaking then you do not have to replace it as it is not timing belt driven it is serpentine belt driven and not subject too the harshness of the timing belt. I checked the gates book and they state that your engine has a chain so servicing is not required. And you can bypass the water pump as long as it is not showing any signs of leakage, and that will be obvious from under the car and looking up at it. So just stick with the normal 60K service and your good to go.
