I have a B14 maintenance code on my 08 EX-L (105000 miles). I called the dealership today (only one within 50 miles of me) and they quoted me ~200 for the plugs, ~700 for the timing belt/water pump and ~400 for the valve adjustment. This seems high to me. Anyone else care to comment?
Also, when should the serpentine belt be changed on these vehicles? I don't really see a service interval or minder code for it. On my other cars, I just change it every 50k and don't worry about it.
Besides driving over an hour to the next closest dealership, there is an independent "import" mechanic here in town that I've heard from others does good work. Should I trust a "random" mechanic to the internal engine work? That is if they are any cheaper. I haven't called anywhere else yet. My appt is for next Friday.
This is my first non-GM vehicle so this particular aspect of the maintenance (timing belt/interference engine, etc) is new to me.
