if you got 65k you're looking at replacing the belt soon or if it's been already done next belt replacement would be at 120 k

Manufacture recommends at 60,000 miles, but I didn't get mine changed until about 105,000 miles. I guess it just depends on how hard you drive you car.

Everyone who has answered so far is wrong. Acura recommends the belt gets changed at 105k, look in your service manual. I had a 2001 CL-S and now I have a 2004 TL. I had them both done at around 105k.

The Acura dealer ( all dealers now have recommendations on maintenance) which are not requirements. Acura RECOMMENDS 60K or 7 years. A technician I talked to said it is really a matter of how hard you drive your car. If you do as lot of jumps off the line (FLOORING IT) IT IS HARD TO TELL HOW LONG THE BELT WILL LAST. If you drive reasonably, the belt should last 100K, However, he said 10 years is a good changing point because rubber does age, even if you don't have 100K or so on the vehicle. Thanx for the responses. I plan on giving it 2 more years even though I do like to move out on occasion.

Glad to hear you figured it out! I'm a pretty easy going driver and my belt showed no significant wear after 105k miles.
