Rebuild/replacment of engine will cost you upwards of 2000+ if that belt breaks. Personally I see it as borrowed time if you don't replace it ontime.
Some other cars its not a big deal as they are non interference and nothing will result du to failure of belt breaking. Not these engines. Severe internal damage will result if it breaks.
So for 400 dollars to replace the belt, its peace of mind that its done.
My dealer for 400 does complete t-belt/water pump/tensioner
