Don't forget that sometimes when they have the timing belt freshly done it's not done right. Look for paint match marks on the sprockets. Otherwise, a timing belt with 80,000 miles doesn't look signifigantly worse than one with 30,000 miles because they are supposed to stay strong for the rated life of the belt. Also remember that a diesel 4 cylidner engine's rotation is more jerky than say, an inline 6 gas engine and that puts stress on a timing belt.
