Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 06 Acura TL has 160 k on it, purchased the car at the dealership at 125k,  
what are the chances the Timing Belt and WP have been changed? If they
need to be changed, what do the prices at the dealership to fix it normally
range? Thanks

Have it inspected or run the risk of failure. Take the car to a good independent mechanic, you're going to save money over the dealer.

The chances are good but you are nearing the time for the second belt so you may want to avoid problems and go ahead and replace it that way you know what you have and don't have to worry about ruining your engine.

Just for fun I asked a local Acura dealer what the cost would be on my old Acura for a timing belt replacement and he quoted me 1200 bucks parts and labor. Yours might be higher or lower depending on the shops labor rate is. HTH
