Default when to replace timing belt?

Hi. Got a 2000 Accord V6 at 105K miles, which is when the owner's manual says to replace the timing belt. Does anyone have experiences with successfully waiting longer to change it? What is realistic in terms of usable life for these belts? Thanks a lot.

I have seen them last 130k.. I have seen most of them last 90-100 k .. i have seen some brake at 70k .. your car ,your money , your call ..but my professional advice ,, do it ASAP..
A lot of it depends also if you do mostly city or hwy driving ..

I didn't chage mines until 203,000 miles on my 2001 Accord EX.. I was taking a risk though but the belt held together..

i replaced water pump/timing belt, tensioner, seals, at 123,000 on my 95 accord ex. I was so worried since i wanted to do it much earlier and kept fearing a break. I never abuse the car.

Make sure to use genuine honda parts on this repair. Honda water pumps are high quality pumps

i heard from some where that the belts cant ever snap really, and are made to anti-stretch to help keep timing accurate. The only thing they can do is deteriarate?

And ramone899 i klnow how you feel, its sucks cause the damn timiing belt job cost around 700 around here. so much damn money.
