Not so. The EX330 has a timing belt, not a chain. There is a BIG difference between the two.

Technically, Heidi has given a very inaccurate response; so please, if you don't know, do not advise..... Chains are designed to last the life of the engine. Belts are expendable; they wear and have to be changed periodically. Your engine has a belt and Lexus recommends changing the belt at 90,000 miles. If you're past that, do change it now before it breaks and leave you stranded or harms the engine. Harm to what degree, I don't know. Check with Lexus to find out if your engine is "interference," which means that if the belt breaks, the pistons will hit the valves and you'll need a new engine that will likely cost the value of the entire car.

Your ES330 has a timing belt, and you should follow the manufacturers replacement intervals specified in your owners manual or by a Lexus technician.
