Timing belt on 2006 Suzuki Forenza

I have a Suzuki Forenza 2006. After how many miles do I have to change my timing belt? Do I also have to change other parts that go with the timing belt also?
Thanks.

You need to get the timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. Don't miss this service because this is an interference engine which means there will be a serious engine damage in case of timing belt failure. I suggest to get the water pump, tensioner, idler pulleys, cam and crank seals replaced also. They are all important pieces of the timing.

Here is the rest of the 60K service:
