The timing belts in these cars typically last about 100,000 miles. The dealer is being a little premature in suggesting you change it at 39,000 unless there are other issues with your engine. Honda/Acura designs their cars this way and it is wise to change it out when you get closer to the 100K mark.

I'd change it, timing belts need to be changed every 7 years or 105K. Yours is 12 years old, they get old and dry and can crack and then break.
