2009 Honda CR-V - timing belt maintenance

my FWD Honda CRV has just turned 200K miles (helped by good maintenance). Should I be concerned about timing belts etc. at this point. I would still like to drive it across the US. Thanks.

You need to check the intervals (mileage and time) specified for timing belt change. This information will be in your owners manual. Usually water pump and tensioner is done with the timing belt.

I’d say you should have replaced the timing belt at least once by now and you are due for a second replacement now.

Edit: But I see you don’t have a timing belt if you have a 4 cylinder. If the timing chain is not rattling, you should be good. If you have’nt replaced the serpentine belt, you are overdue to replace that.
