2002 Honda Civic Engine Size unknown Wheel Drive Type unknown Manual 90000 miles

I want to buy a used car?I wana know generally when should the timing belt/chain be replaced for honda, toyota, nissan?

I am looking at this 2002 civic with 90K miles. Does it need the belt to be replaced?

whats the general criteria for hondas, toyotas n nissans(1998 n after).90K/105K miles or 6/8 years?

Pls advise.

Rule of thumb is 60,000 but no more than 100,000 hope this helps. Feedback is much appreciated.

I did some googling. It says. For newer hondas. Its 105K miles.N so I am confused.(The car is not used in extreme conditions)

and how about for cars with timing chain? And for those which are like 98-00 model but less mileage approx 50-70K miles?

Timing chains don't need to be replaced. Timing belts were implemented to make it cheaper and keep costs down, chains are expensive.
