Have it changed sooner rather than later. If you are going to keep the vehicle I'd have it changed soon. If the belt breaks, you will not be happy.

I think the general consensus is 100k but in your case, NOW! 9 years is a long time for such a mechanically sensitive component of your engine. I recommend finding a trusted, independent mechanic instead of the dealer. Cost to replace timing belt, water pump, serpentine belt, etc should be in the neighborhood of $800. Might be a good opportunity to replace motor mounts and other wear items while everything is opened up.

    I have a RL, the dealer says change the timing belt at 7 years or 105,000 miles. I bought it used and its over 7 years old, but should I get it replaced now, or wait until the 105,000 miles?
