Default Timing Belt Replacement

Im sitting at 90k miles on my 2010 CT, so I have been planning on timing belt replacement soon. I was at my local Panama City, FL Honda getting fluid the other day, and got a price to do the change, plus water pump, serpentine, tensioner. I was quoted $1200 for the whole job. I about fell out of the chair. I was expecting $800. Is that price ($1200) a good average?

How difficult is it to change. Moderate wrenching experience myself, would have help from a friend. Any advice?

The biggest issue is lining up the serpentine belt. One cog off and the car will run poorly. If you have the shop manual and a good set of tools, along with a 'long weekend', you can certainly try it. As for the price, $1200 is not terrible. I usually find around $1000 more common. You might try calling around to some other Honda dealers in your area. We have 3 here where I live and their prices vary. You might also try negotiating a bit. Offer $1000 and see what they say. They would rather have their techs busy with making $1000 than no work at all. Also look for coupons on their web sites. Finding a 10 or 15% discount coupon would put the price back to around $1000 too. Good luck and let us know what you did.

I wish it was $1200... I'm at 114k on my 2010 and was quoted almost $1900 for timing, serpentine, plugs, fluids and a couple other things... In Texas

It's suppose to be done at 70,000 miles. I'd have it done soon!

The maintenance schedule for my 2012 has 90-100K miles for the Sub Item 4 (spark plugs, timing components, water pump, valve clearance) unless you regularly drive in temps over 110F or under -20F and/or tow a trailer. In those cases it is recommended to perform Sub Item 4 every 60K.

I was quoted (In Kansas) $1900 for Sub Items 4 and 5 (replace coolant).

for what it's worth the cost break down has the cost to replace spark plugs as $302.34... and Adjust Valves at $524.79... i personally would skip those items unless your valves are noisy.

Default I think you're good, on your price

Your quoted price seems fair to me, based upon the times I've had this done in the past. For me, definitely a "shop" DIY job. I've reviewed the service procedure for this and it requires removing at least one motor mount and raising one side of the engine with a jack. I'd rather have someone who does this regularly handle this project for me.

Mine it was recommended at 60k+ for timing belt and tensor for $895 . I am in Dallas, Texas metroplex area.

I deffered but based on the current 78k and hot around here even though I dont drive that much I am considering doing this in 6months time frame.

Let us know your experience in the end.

I will check other dealerships as well.

I got mine replaced @ 95k miles. The original water pump and tensioner appeared to be in great shape but better safe than sorry so I had new ones installed.

I wonder if there is a way to find out if the belt has been changed? I bought my car at 125k, and it is now at 149k... are there signs that I might need to look at this, performance issues etc?

Did you run a Car Fax on your car? That might let you know.

i was able to get the service records from honda on my pre-owned. i was very lucky though to be the second owner and the first took excellent care of the vehicle and all services were performed at the dealership... worth a shot :shrug:
