Q: WHen should timing belt be replaced? on 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
We just bought a 2001 Spyder Eclipse. We do not know when or if the timing belts has ever been replaced. How can we check its condition. What is the ballpark figure if it needs replacing? Thanks!

I understand the milage it should be checked. That's not my question. My question is how can we tell how old the current belt is? We bought it used 3 weeks ago and do not know its history or when it was last replaced. Is there a way to tell or not? Also, how much is it to replace one? Thanks
