2002 Honda Accord Automatic 22,750 miles
When I took my car to the dealership for routine service, I was told that I needed to replace my timing belt. The car has only 22,750 miles on it, is regularly garaged, and has never had a problem. The dealership insists that the timing belt needs to be replaced every 6 or 7 years, irrespective of mileage, because "rubber degrades regardless of whether you're trying the car alot." Can this possibly be right? I got the feeling that they were just trying to make some money off me, because they know I know nothing about cars. Thanks for any advice you can give me.
have the same problem?
