am at 58,000 and maint. light is one on 2003 Honda Civic

Is this the timing chain maintenance? Is it still a chain or a belt in this car and what are the repercussions if I don't replace it right away? Does it have to be done by the dealership? Thanks.

This could be done by the dealership but it could also be done at any shop with an A mechanic, if the belt breaks then you will need a tow truck to move your car, also it may damage the engine's valves.

Honda recommends replacing the timing belt on the 1.7L 4 Cylinder at 110,000 Miles, so you don't need to worry about replacing it yet. If you have the Si model, it has a timing chain.
