2012 Frontier.
32k miles on it

Besides visual inspection of belts, would you go by the age or by the miles to decide to replace a serpentine belt?

Many variables, no cracks, no noise, charging system OK,
don't worry about it. Usually 60K is a good time to
think about belts.

Traded 08 Frontier for 16 Frontier SV CC Long box, quite an upgrade. I do miss the 6 speed and Dynomax ex.

Gates makes a small plastic gauge that is used to measure the depth.
A good rule of thumb is to follow the manufacture specs.
I ran the belt on my Dodge Caliber for over 150,000 and it was still in
good shape.
If you want to push it, keep a spare in the vehicle.
