When should I change CX-5 drive belts? Is there a mileage they generally need to be replaced? The manual just says to inspect them.

I typically do mine every 100,000 miles; regardless of whether they need changing or not.

Yeah I agree. Do your inspections and check for a leaking hydraulic tensioner and if the belts are contaminated by oil or cracked or glazed. If none of that and they are still quiet then you can wait for the 100k miles. Thank the old belts for their service and celebrate by installing new belts. Don’t forget the ac belt requires a small tool investment to install a stretch to fit belt.

Check/inspect every service. R&R if signs of wear.
