    So that was risky, isn't 100K the recommend on that?

    How much did it cost you?

    Honda mechanic do the belts ,water pump and oil change for $375.00. Good

    At that price, those were aftermarket parts.

    Watch carefully for noises and leaks from your new water pump, and do not
    allow the new belt to go the full specified interval before replacing it

    You will NOT get the same longevity from aftermarket as you will from
    genuine Honda.
