My neighbor has a Mazda Miata and he mentioned that it had a "non interference engine". Until he explained it to me, I didn't know what that ment. My question is, are our engines "non interference" or not. Will a sudden failure of the timeing belt cause a lot of damage?

All Toyota engines with a belt are non interference, with the possible exception of the deisels.....

I had a timing belt blow in my 5th gen. All that happened was I needed to replace a couple of idler pulleys. Only reason I think that I even had to do that was because i was at like 4krpm when it blew.
