Personally, I recommend my customers to replace their timing belt ever 60,000miles. However, I live in Canada where the climate is much more harsh than in the states. Refer to your owners manual, read both severe duty maintenance and normal maintenance. Follow whichever one you fit underneath.
Personally, if it was my car, I would do the timing belt every 60-70,000miles. I believe those are interference motors meaning if the belt snaps your valves might hit your pistons.
