Default When to Replace Timing Belt on 2001 Honda Civic

Sorry. Did not see this forum and accidently posted in the general discussion forum. Anyway,


I have a 2001 Honda Civic DX. I purchased the vehicle in October of 2001. I am looking to sell it soon but I am trying to figure out if I really need the timing belt replaced. The honda dealership says I should get it replaced but I only have 73,000 miles on the car, despite it being 9 years old. The manual says to replace the timing belt at 110,000 miles or 84 months. I realize I have passed the 84 month mark but I'm am no where near the 110,000 mile mark. Do I really need to replace before I sell it? Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Anyone? Anyone at all?

I took it to another mechanic today and he basically told me I didn't need to change the timing belt until 90 or 95k miles, even if the car is 9 years old. He told me that Honda was just trying to make money off of me, which I thought too, but still unsure. He didn't check out the car though.
