2003 Honda CRV - When should timing belt be changed?

I have a 2003 Honda CRV with 72k miles. When should the timing belt be changed? 105k?

The recommended timing belt service interval is 105,000 miles.

…or 8.5 years, whichever comes first.
On the basis of elapsed time you are either due now, or will be due very soon, for this vital maintenance.

Your CRV has a timing chain, it doesn’t need to be replaced.

really it has a 4 cylinder??

All CRV’s are 4 cylinders.

I can’t be sure about the 2003 CRV, but I have 2006, & mine has a timing chain. Oh I just googled it and they say you have a timing chain. Your manual should also tell you. That is the best I can do. Honda Bill
