I had an Astra some time ago, as I was having a new water pump fitted under warranty the garage asked me if I wanted a new cambelt fitted as it was due in a few thousand miles, it was due for changing every 40000 miles, at that time it would have cost £40 so I said yes.

I am pretty sure that they never fitted one but charged me as the new cambelt snapped 25000 miles later.

So I am sure you could be OK for a few miles yet but don't quote me, I had my cambelt changed on my Laguna dead on the recomended 5 years 2 months ago. £320 from Renaults on mine.

It is a lot more difficult to do on your V6.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
