When should timing belt be replaced? on 2006 Honda Ridgeline

During routine maintenance (67,585 miles) of 2006 Ridgeline, Honda dealer recommeded replacing the timing belt. It seemed they were basing their recommendation on mileage. No problems with the Ridgeline, runs beautifully, very little off-roading, mostly town and highway driving. How much should replacement of timing belt cost?

Asked by for the 2006 Honda Ridgeline
Honda suggests 7 years or 105,000 miles, whichever comes first on your Ridgeline. It seems to me that 5 years and 68,000 miles is premature.

The replacement of that timing belt, along with replacing the drive belts and the water pump should package up at around $895, give or take $100 depending on where you are. Check around - many dealers even have specials for savings off of their package pricing. Check with their web sites... I know I did at my old Honda dealer- I gave customers $100 that price through our web page. Good luck!
