2000 Acura TL Question: Timing Belt

 

Question

Visitor, 3.2L V6, Hackettstown, NJ, March 28, 2010, 17:10

I have a 2000 TL with 93,000 miles, the dealer is recommending I change the timing belt at a price of $900.
Is it necessary to change now and is this a good price?

    did the dealer include replacing the water pump? when doing a timing belt, it is always reccommended to replace it along with the belt and all the pulleys and tensioner assembly. the dealer is always the most expensive. call local repair centers and compare.
