Good news- your car doesn't have a cam belt, it has a cam chain which should last the life of the engine.

Mazda Atenza 2006 when to change cambelt or is it chain driven

My data book shows that all Mazda motors around the 2006 year are all chain driven. they include 4 cylinders and V -6 engines . Chains have an aluminium housing on the front of the engine where as belts have a plastic cover . Chains have a hydraulic adjuster which adjusts the chain automatically and the KLM's to do it will depend on the work the engine does and the services it gets . For example if you are a petrol head and forget the services or uses cheap /wrong grade oils then the chain may be noisy at 150.000 klms but if you drive responsibly and change the oil every 10.000 klms and use a good quality oil the chain will last more than 250.000klms. To prevent being taken in future check the accreditation of the mechanic and ask around about the garage's customer relations

It should tell you in the owners manual, but generally those belts are good for about 100,000 miles, so you may want to think about at 80,000 miles.
