I have a 2002 Acura TL with 165K miles. Have never replaced any parts, other than brakes, tires, etc Maintainance light just came on, could it be asking the timing to be replaced?

It is way overdue, but thankfully I haven't heard of any acura TL having the belt broken. Also, I am buying the parts and taking to the mechanic, I don't know much about brands but I saw this at Advance Auto Part "Dayco Timing Belt Water Pump Kit" for $192, is that a safe brand to use? Thanks in advance

Dayco is known for their belts and should be fine. Not so sure on the other parts in the kit.
