sorry I hit post and wasn't finished. That same pdf file from Kia says inspect at 30k, 45k, 60k and 75k and replace at 90k if you have not already done so after an inspection indicates you should

http://www.lemonlaw.com/wordpress/do-you-have-to-change-the-timing-chain-on- your-kia-rio/ is another link you may want to look at, there seems to be a descrepency on whether it's a belt or chain driven cam.

Personally I would replace it as the repair manual tells you do do it. They snap often and when they do, you need a new engine. Used engine are rare and they sell around 1500$ + installation =$$$. Worth investing in a new belt. Personaly I would change it when they recommand it. It snap on my previous Rio so I bought a new Rio instead...
