Other than telling you that, yes, the list consensus is that the V6
timing belt should be changed at 60k, I would get everything in

If the dealer and AoA tell you that 90k is fine for the timing belt,
AND the dealer inspects it (impossible with the damn thing on) and
gives it a clean bill of health, then see about making it their
responsibility. Ask them if they will pay for the repairs if the belt
breaks before 90k miles. I'm sure they'll stipulate some ridiculous
maintenance schedule to check it on your dime, or just outright say no.

I will add that it's an expensive job and one not ventured into
lightly. If you're the one that's going to have to foot the bill when
the belt breaks, fix it now. If the dealership will pay for the
repairs, let it go.
