Have someone look at the belt, what if it breaks when you are crossing a
RR track and a train is comming, well you get out fast, hope no kids are
on board. Or crossing a highway etc

Im serious , you get NO warning.

Used car dealer said that, eh?

My '93 Camry V6 is a non-interference engine and, as far as I can tell,
the '96 Camry V6 is also a non-interference engine.

The following link has a link to a guide on just about all makes &
models. Beware, it's a pdf.

http://www.gates.com/brochure.cfm?brochure=981

It shows Camry V6's through 1997 as being non-interference.

That said, I'd check with a dealer or mechanic who knows something
about Toyotas to be sure.

I was working in the front yard one day when a girl in a small red Dodge
turned the corner and just stopped. She tried to get the car to the curb but
was still sticking out it the street a little with a dead engine. Pushed the
car to the curb, then after pulling the little inspection plug out of the
timing belt cover found the belt hanging slack. Fortunately she was in a
residential area, as you say it could have been a lot worse.

Scary analogies aside, what I would do is replace the timing belt [and
you may as well do the water pump too]. That way you know without a
doubt.

I did this with my '93 when I bought it -- peace of mind is a wonderful
thing.
