Check on the service history if you have one, if not its always a good idea to change it now then your mind is at rest, then check with dealers when to replace it next time. if the price difference is not too much, use the original belt from dealers then you know exactly how long it will last.

If it has not yet had a belt at 10 years old it needs changing, disregard the mileage as the age is now more relevant
