Hi. follow your service manual recommendation.
If you are a little venturous, check actual belt condition.
I did on mine easily by removing four screws.

Do not rely on it, 100K km (60K miles) is a lot for the belt. Just understand, that when the belt let go, it is mega $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Very true and if you got a 2001 it sure is worth replacing. California law requires a timing belt to last 60,000 miles(100,00km) so all the manufacturers install belts that will last a long time but better to be safe than sorry.

One other thing. If your engine is an""interference engine"" which means that if belt breaks it will cause damage to your engine then for sure get belt changed> if it is non_interference like many newer engines then if it breaks you will just have to have it towed to get it replaced>not a bad trade_off for tardiness!! just do a search to see if it is ?
