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 !
