pretty sure it has a timing belt. not sure what honda's replacement interval is, but most manufacturers recommend between 60,000-100,000 miles. i think they put timing chains in starting the 06 or 07 model year

Many Hondas, including your Civic, have timing belts. Change the belt between 60,000 and 90,000 miles. The 06+ Civics have timing chains.

Honda recommends replacement of the timing belt at 105,000 miles or 7 years, whichever comes first.
