    Hello ETCG fans!

    I’m a proud owner of a 2000 Honda Accord V6 with 131,000 miles, which has held up great. The car stayed in the family, and it’s been taken care of very well. I’ve read extensively about the transmissions being bad on these, and so far there hasn’t been any trouble. However, I’m not sure whether or not I should do a timing belt service on it (with tensioners & water pump). I don’t have the time (or experience) to do it myself and I know it’s an expensive job. Should I pay for the service? Would it be worth it on a car this old? Thanks!! STAY DIRTY!!!!!

    When or if was it done last?
    Break down the numbers … your looking at a vehicle that averages ~ 6240 miles a year
    As to:” Would it be worth it on a car this old? ”
    That all depends on a few things ….
    What condition is the vehicle in?
    How long do you plan on driving it?
    Your budget?
    Comparative cost for another vehicle?
