Question about 2000 Honda CR-V
I would have thought it should be done around 100,000 kms like most cars, but some makes are extending the service schedules for cambelts these days. If it has never been replaced, then it is imperative that it gets done very soon. Without getting too technical, if the cambelt was to break, the cam suddenly stops while the engine is running potentially leaving a valve wide open. The pistons keep moving as they are powered on by the motion of the vehicle, and they smash into the open valves, causing a great deal of damage to the engine internals. This sounds expensive and it is. Often it is cheaper to install a second hand engine than repair the old one after a broken cambelt. So yes, do it soon!!

Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles / 100,000 Km or 7 years, whichever comes first. They have been known to last a lot longer than that but it is cheaper to have it replaced than to risk critical and expensive engine damage if it breaks.
