Default 2007 Accord with 2.4 timing chain

My Daughter just bought an 07 Accord with a 2.4, I believe the engine model is K24A8. I believe this engine has a timing chain and not a belt, correct? I was wondering what the service life is on the timing chain, how often it should be changed?

What problem areas should I look for on this car? So far, it looks like it's in pretty good shape.

Timing chain should be good for the life of the vehicle; errr, unless it has been run without any oil, that has been known to damage timing chains.

Thanks, that's the answer I was looking for, I just wanted to make sure it didn't need normal replacing like the belt.

There is something about checking the amount of extension in the chain-tensioner. But I don't remember the details.
