No. I believe only the 6 cylinder models have a timing belt. Someone verify me on this.

Chain on the 4-cyl beginning in 2003.

Yeah.... that's a good thing. Way better than a belt.

I wish mine had a chain. You should be happy. You rarely ever (if ever) have to change a chain.

The site is kind of AWOL at the moment. Tons of threads about it already.

I was very happy when I found out I had a chain and not a belt. The belt is a down side for the V6 IMO.
