Q: 96 Geo Prizm Timing Belt Replacement on 1996 Geo Prizm

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
We have about 116,000 miles on our 96 Prizm, running and looking great. Should we be replacing the timing belt at this point?
The recommended replacement interval for the timing belt on your 1996 Geo Prizm is 60K. If the belt was replaced at 60k then you are just about due. If it has never been replaced you are running on borrowed time! If the belt were to fail, most likely engine damage would result.
