Interference Engine or Not?

Hi Folks, I have a 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid getting close to 100k and would like to know if anyone has any personal experience with this vehicle as far as whether it's an interference design engine or not. Reason I am asking is because i plan on selling the vehicle within the year and don't want to spend the $700 Toyota is asking to replace the timing belt if i don't have to worry about engine damage occuring if the belt were to break. I have spoken with Toyota about this and the dealer states that the engine is non-interference but is unable/unwilling to show me this in writing.
