Should I change the timing belt on my 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring?

Wondering if I should change it before long road trip

Hey Scotty, a year and a half ago I bought a 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring with 112k km on it. It now has 165k km. The previous owner replaced the timing belt in 2015 with 85k km, meaning there's 80k km on this belt. The owner's manual says to replace it every 96k kilometers under extreme conditions. I am going on a 3500km road trip soon and am thinking about doing it just for peace of mind. I live in southern Ontario Canada where we have hot summers and very cold winters. Do you think I should have it replaced?

You the man :)

go ahead if you want, but I'd only change it every 96 thousand miles myself
