Well while driving yesterday i noticed i smelled some burning rubber not strong but present like 4 times they lasted only bout 20 seconds but it was my car... and later i noticed that in the engine bay theres now a click click squeak but not to loud... the belts dont look to old but there not new... what do bad belts do before they break?

they just break, there isn't much warning when a belt is about to break it just happens but usually you can hear the cause of what broke the belt.

If you have a pulley(a/c compressor, alternator, power steeting, water pump) that is about to lock up then you will be able to hear that. Check your pulleys first to make sure you don't have some loose or hard to turn. Then check your belts to make sure you don't have too much cracking or your tension isn't too loose or too tight. Most newer accents have three accessory belts, make sure you check them all.
