Q: 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.

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.
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.
That is the notification to CHANGE YOUR OIL! it comes on after every 5 to 6 thousand miles on all hondas.
