Yes, the timing belt needs to be replaced.

Here's a place to start.

Personally, I would do ALL the 60K mile scheduled as well.

Here's a thread on nastysock for another reference :

Like Paul said, timing belt needs to be done at 100K. Do you know if the 90K service was done? If not, that would be a good place to start.

Yep, might as well do it all so you know your car is in good shape. Every 30k is a semi-major maintenance milestone where most of the fluids should be replaced as well as some other odds and ends. Around 100k for the timing belt.
