The previous response was: "I have a Mazda millenia 1998 that has over 200,000 miles on it. I have always replaced my timing belt every 60,000 miles. I hope this helps."
The manual says to change at 105,000. The reality is that the belts are kevlar and will likely last much longer. The engine is non-interference so it will not damage the engine if it breaks. The experts I speak with say they would drive it until it breaks.
It will cost you around $500 at least in labor to replace and many times if the job is done improperly you will have other problems as a result.

For the record, my 99 S has 110,000 on the original belt. I'm not even thinking about replacing it... until it breaks (if that ever happens).
