your vehicle would actually have a timing belt on it not a chain. Honda recommends replacement at around 90k-105k (miles) along with water-pump ,tensioner and tensioner bearing, depending on climate and normal/severe driving conditions. they have had some issues with some of the hydraulic tensioners, 6 cylinder model, failing prematurely. Depending on the dealership ,and if you can show a record of adddiquate maintenance records (you have kept up on normal maintenance) and failure is not due to anything other than part failure, honda will most likely agree to a warranty of the part itself with you paying for labor cost due to fact of outside normal warranty specs.

Install the timing belt, around the pulleys, in the sequence shown

2003 and up Honda Accord with 4 cylinder engines do indeed have a chain and the V6 has a belt which must be replaced at 110,000 miles. Why? Ask Honda, they designed the engines.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your clarification. Most helpful"
Belt is better replace either about every 100.000 or you'll destroy the engine when it goes out
Belt is Better because it's easier to replace, therefore much cheaper
Chain is inside and in the oil bath so harder= more expensive
By the way. dealer says replace every 60K . 100K is a MAXIMUM
