Default How often does a 05 Honda Accord need to have the valves adjusted?

I have a 05 sedan with 35k miles. I have not taken it to the dealer for its 30k service. I read in the manual that there is a valve adjustment around this mileage. Is this a routine thing on all accords?

honda now recomends that the valves only get adjusted on vehiles that are "noisey" at the shop i work at we do it at 60k as preventitive maintanence. along with complete fluid change (coolant trans oil brake fluid). and on the v6 models we do not adjust the valves at all. we have seen several accords with the 4cyl have bad exhaust cams, the #2 cam lobe was improperly hardend during manufacturing and as a result it wears prematurly. so if you hear a lot of valve noise, it wouldn't be a bad idea concidering your warinty is about to run out.
