inspect the belt, if it looks suspect, get it replaced. A car that old, honestly I'd do a basic maintenance: Air filter, cabin air filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, oil change+filter, check brakes/rotors. That should give you peace-of-mind that you've got 2017 parts running those components

You can't tell the condition of a timing belt by looking at it. This vehicle is 17 years old, replace the timing belt.
