Just purchased 2000 Honda Accord sedan with V-6 and 52,000 miles. The TIMING BELT has only 52,000 miles but is now 16 years old......do I need to get it replaced?

Thank you

As long as a belt is still tight and there is no visible damage such as cracks tears or wear from rubbing a belt should be able to last at least twice its rating.
