Default tming belt interval

I have a 99 camry 4cyl that is approaching 100,000 kms. Should I
replace the timing belt like I did with my Hondas?

The recommended interval for 4 cyl Camry is 60,000 miles or 96,560 km.
You do have the added benefit of the engine being non-interference, so
if the belt does break it will not damage the insides. However you
will end up paying for towing.

I have the same car. My local Toyota dealer's mechanic recommended that
I wait until 120k, despite what's printed in the owner's manual. Shrug.
At least there's no danger of engine damage if it fails (unlike your
Hondas).

I have never heard of the non-interference engine, very interesting.
Does the 2005 Camry have this feature as well?

Thanks

2005 is probably different

some have timing chain rather than belt, plus variable valve timing.
