Does the Acura TL 2012 have a timing belt or timing chain?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Bruce, You have a timing belt, which is preferred over the chain style due to the more smooth revolution. You should look to replace this belt around the 100k mile mark, and typically it is recommended that yo replace the water pump whole you are in there.
