When should I replace the timing belt? on 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe

I have a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe with 22,500 miles. The factory maintenance schedule calls for replacing the timing belt at 75,000 miles or five years. Should I replace it now?

In Colorado weather it would probably be a good idea, it's 5 years. Better safe then sorry.
