Question: Should I replace timing belt after 7 years or can I wait for the 100000 miles recomended maintainan

I just bought a 2005 Dodge SX 2.0 (Neon) with 50000klm on it. Should I change the timing belt now and before the 100,000klm recommended by manufacturer or can I safely wait for the recommended 100,000klm even if years do by. Thanks for any information.
