Yes, the timing belt needs to be replaced.

Here's a place to start.

110k maintance?

Go here for directions -->

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

Here's a thread on nastysock for another reference :

2002 WRX Sold
2007 WRX Sold
2007 STi totaled
2007 Foz XT sold
2007 MS3

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. More details here: Subaru maintenance schedules and new car break-in period- 2000 through 2009, links for 2010, 2011...
