Personally I would replace it as the repair manual tells you do do it. They snap often and when they do, you need a new engine. Used engine are rare and they sell around 1500$ + installation =$$$. Worth investing in a new belt. Personaly I would change it when they recommand it. It snap on my previous Rio so I bought a new Rio instead...
