My wife just bought an Accord EX-L yesterday and I was told that it has a timing chain. Also, the site zercustoms.com states, "A silent-chain drives dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder." The link is here: http://www.zercustoms.com/news/2008-Honda-Accord-Powertrain.html

Like other Honda V-6 powerplants, the Accord V-6 cylinder heads are a single-overhead-camshaft design, with the cams driven by the crankshaft via an automatically tensioned toothed belt.
