When should I have the timing belt changed?

I have a 2016 Skoda Superb that's done 68,000 miles. When should I have the timing belt changed?

Most cam belt failures we hear about are between 50,000-100,000 miles. That's why I always recommend replacing the cam belt, tensioner and water pump every 50,000-60,000 miles or five years (whichever comes first).
