    I would replace it now rather than waiting until it breaks on the road

    i believe it should be done at approx 70k miles or 8 yrs but sooner is good. repl water pump and all componenets under timing cover at that time.the belt can be insp for cracks prior to repl if need be,just pull 2 timng covers
