Technically you are supposed to replace the timing belt or chain every 60,000 miles. It is a costly expense to replace it so often but it can be far more costly if you don't. Since your vehicle has a chain the pieces can wear down and eventually break and shoot up into your engine causing catastrophic engine failure which can completely ruin your vehicle.
Mercedes c200 cdi hasn't got timing belt. Has got chain.
The Prizm has a timing CHAIN, not belt. The timing chain does not get replaced on a scheduled interval. It should never need to be replaced. The serpentine belt, however, does need to be replaced. Inspect the belt for cracks and glazing, and replace. It is not a difficult DIY job. It is easiest to do it from under the car, after removing the splash pan.

A timing chain is something that will normally last until the engine needs an overhaul. It is starts making a noise, or you cannot keep the engine timed, it may need replacing. Otherwise it is not an item you replace at a set interval.A timing chain is something that will normally last until the engine needs an overhaul.

No, it uses a timing chain. The long belt that you see under the hood is a serpentine belt. Replace if excessively cracked or worn. The other smaller belt off to the right, when looking at the engine, is the power steering belt. Hope this clears things up for you.
