Default Drive/accessory belt change interval

Does anyone know when the drive belt should be changed? I didn't see a recommendation in the manual.

I assume you are talking about the serpentine belt?
Not a G2 owner, but 100K seems reasonable.

Drive belts get changed at 105k in other Hondas. The Insight service pages only say to inspect it. I would try to make sure it was replaced by 120k if not sooner.

My 2nd gen Insight has 83.000Km. I've read in the manual a 10 year or 120.000Km interval. At the dealer they say it's only cgeching from revision to revision. Is that correct?

Please define "cgeching from revision to revision"?
