I have a 2003 Honda Accord LX manufactured in Japan (vin # begins with J). I currently have 287,543 mostly freeway miles and it runs perfect. I visit the dealer approximately every 3 months, changing the oil and doing its inspections each time. I have a timing chain not belt. I have never had any maintenance issues and have only changed the starter, high pressure line from the PSP to the rack and pinion.
I was told by the dealer the timing chain never needs to be changed because it is a chain NOT Belt. When does the chain need to be changed? Does it ever break under normal use? No Speeding.
