Thank you for the donation,
Most manufacturers will give a mileage or time frame to replace the timing belt. If your dealer has advised this is now due for your car, I would do it. These engine are interference engines, that is valves will strike pistons if the belt fails, the cost is horrendous to repair these engines, I would change the belt, it's call preventive maintenance.
