If you buy the kit anywhere else, be sure it says Aisin. Some unknown brand kits being marketed by using the TKH002 item #.

You should give Gates a try. People have had great success with them...:LOL::LOL:

In all seriousness, Asin is a great brand and people seem to be very happy with it. I have no idea what my mechanic uses but I've had 100% success so far.
Congrats for being brave/skilled enough to take on this job. It is one of the jobs I am very happy to hand my money over to someone else to do it for me.

Ditto I shelled out almost $1,400 at my local Acura dealer but got very fresh 2018 MDX to play with for a weekend!

I've bought Gates belts for many years and have been satisfied. One of my Crosstours is running with a Gates serpentine tensioner for the last 65k miles with no issues (so far). But it had come to my attention that the brand is not exactly being made in house anymore. I'm not ready to trust a water pump not made and sold by the same company.
Aisin makes the water pump and tensioner in their kit. Mitsuboshi belt is also a maker of belts for Honda among others. The bearings are Koyo. The same bearings Honda uses as OE.
I've installed Aisin water pumps on other vehicles other than Honda. Even on a Chevrolet! They have never failed me. No reason to change.

Yep if I were to do it myself I’d go with the Aisin kit. If my mechanic asked me which parts I wanted to use I’d also go with Aisin.

I just got a -001 kit in the mail, and parts are as NailGrease describes. I tend to stay with the herd when people here report success and haven't been disappointed.

Fisher Price edition? Is this below the LX edition? ;)

It is a plastic fantastic interior, but it is holding up exceptionally well in ours.
