Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Kia Sorento 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 28,000 miles

My warranty expires in August so I took my car in for some issues. The dealer called me to say that I should have all 3 of my engine belts replaced due to the age of my car- even though it only has 28,000 miles on it. They said it is not covered under warranty and that it would cost me $140.00. Does this sound right to you?

Yes, although most maintenance repairs are made by mileage intervals, sometimes age overcomes mileage and forces you to need to replace it earlier. Even though the belts may only have a short amount of mileage, they still have been installed and used for several years from 2004 now. They can begin to crack and / or stretch even without many miles, simply due to age. The estimate you received is a fair price to pay for these repairs.
