Acura recommends 105K or 7 years. Do you plan on keeping the car? Might be piece of mind to do it now. You can always wait if you want, but your engine is an interference engine and will cause valve damage if it does break. Your call.

Tom is correct. I have a 2006 Acura TL with 97,000 miles and in mint condition. However I plan to replace the Belt a little sooner and only at the Acura dealership. The last place you want to take is a road side shop. They destroyed my 1996 Acura TL.

I have a 2009 Acura TL with 109,000 miles and the place where I get my oil changes and got my tires (not a 10 minute oil change place) has suggested the change of timing belt, water pump and flushing the cooling system. My dad has always had Honda's and when it comes to big things like brakes, etc. he always goes to Honda for those repairs. Is this something you'd suggest to have done at Acura or Honda? Thank you.

    My 2003 Acura TL has 200,000 miles on it. We've had it since it had 35,000 miles and have never replaced the timing belt. How crucial is it that we do this? The car runs great day in and day out.

    I have a RL, the dealer says change the timing belt at 7 years or 105,000 miles. I bought it used and its over 7 years old, but should I get it replaced now, or wait until the 105,000 miles?
