Cool 2009 timing belt

I have a 2009 impreza 2.5i. I know subaru calls for the belt to be replaced at 105k. I took it in to the stealership to have the oil changed a while back and they recommended all these inspections which included a timing belt inspection. I didn't have it done because I'm not a big fan of blowing my hard earned dollars on an inspection that's gonna tell me I'm still good. I'm currently at 69,900 miles on the car. Do I really need to have it inspected or am I good to ride it out to 105,000 miles and have the belt replaced then. I don't drive my car hard and most of these miles are highway ones. It's a bone stock impreza too. advice is greatly appreciated.

I would say if it is under warranty have it done, if not you should be fine. I have 74400 miles 7 year old car which is under the 105 mark but the belt is also 7 years old so it is probably getting brittle and would probably be a good idea to replace. Yours only being 3 years old shouldn't be a problem and I wouldn't worry about it.

10 year old subaru timing belts with 105k miles are nearly identical to new. The belts don't wear, and although inspecting them is never a bad idea, the belt isn't the part that fails. Idlers fail, which won't be caught by a visual inspection.
