Max, it should say in the owner's manual, it's probably something like 105k miles. However, personally, I would do it now, as,
assuming it hasn't been done, it's 7 years old.... There is generally a mileage and time period for changing the belts. I.e., it might
be something like 105k miles or 7 years.... 

Typically, you'd also replace the tensioner pulley, water pump, idle pulley and the serpentine belt.

Hi List,

My sister has an all-road w/ a 3.0 in it.   Does anyone know what the 
timing belt change interval is on those?  She says it has 86k miles and 
has never been changed.
Anything else that should be done on those "while i'm in there" ?
