My 2004 3.2L Acura TL is 9 yrs. old and has approx. 67,700 miles on it. Automatic transmission. It's in great shape......still drives and looks like new.
My Acura dealer service advisor says Acura recommends timing belt replacement at 90,000 miles or 6 yrs., whichever comes first. He says the 6-yr. recommendation is because the belts deteriorate over time (dry rot, etc.).
Cost to replace the timing belt is $800 and includes water pump replacement and coolant replacement.
Is the service advisor's 6-yr. recommendation valid?
