The vehicle I drive is a 2010 powershift 2.0Lt which we purchased new and up until now have had no problems, having said that we only have 20,000 miles on the clock, but the years behind the car are 10yrs.which brings into play the requirement to change the timing belts.

Question solved for my self,Mk3's have chain timing system, plus they have a NON INTERFERENCE engine. So after all these years have learnt something new.!!!!
The "rubber" belt is the axillary drive belt, and if it snapped you would loose alternator, water pump, basically all the components run by the
axillary drive belt,but I'm informed by mazda rep that one could still drive the car ,if you are almost on your doorstep or wanted to get to a garage!!
