How many miles between Drive/ Serpentine Belt Replacement. I think I have about 70,000 with no signs of wear.

Modern serpentine belts don't show 'wear' (cracking, slipping) the same as belts made in the 1990s. Gates Rubber used to give away a tool that measured the depth of the V-grooves, but I don't think they do any more.

Age is another factor. If your 2006's belt is original, I'd think about replacing it.

We replaced our at around 100K miles just as Good Practice.

gates depth tool. I have 2 of them. IMHO they’re of limited utility.
