Re: '05 Pilot - "Time" for timing belt change?
ive got an 05 mdx with now 131k on it. I just removed the timing belt cover to inspect the original belt and the original belt still looks and feels great. No cracks, no abnormal wear, not dried up. No noises at all from any of the idlers, tensioner, or wp. And the engine doesnt have a single leak. So its going to wait another year to get changed when I come back from overseas.
Oh and the car was in AZ most of its life. I bought it with 50k on it back in 2008.
But of course they are going to recommend you to do the belt. Its how they make money.
