Default 9-5 Arc Timing Belt Intervals

Hi everyone, this is my first post on SaabCentral, you've all got an awesome forum here!

I've got a 2002 9-5 Arc with ~120k on it. Not sure when the last timing belt change was, can anyone shed some light on what the normal intervals are? Or how to check to see if I'm in need of one?

Thanks for the help!

Replace it now!

Intervals are 60k miles, but if you don't know when it was done last, don't take the risk. I've seen too many nice cars go due to timing belt failures...
