Replace it at 90K miles. It is expensive (1000 to 1500) but it you don't and it fails, it will leave you stranded and the engine will have to be replaced. Just Inspecting the timing belt requires a fairly radical disassembly so you might as pay the additional money and just replace it (a real timing belt inspection on the V6 will run about 1/2 the cost of replacing it).
