I have used gates and continental before. Never have had a failure. Although belts really havent failed for many decades like they use too.

Gates out of your choices. Prefer Goodyear Gatorback

Mitsuboshi for Asian cars and available on Amazon most likely. Easiest to fit out of the ones you mention on Asian cars.

The Gatorback is now the Continental Elite.

Continental A.G.’s ContiTech division has begun marketing premium automotive, light truck and heavy-duty aftermarket products that were formerly branded Goodyear Gatorback under a new name, Elite.

The name change follows Continental’s acquisition of U.S. rubber company Veyance Technologies Inc.

At the time the acquisition was completed in January 2015, Continental announced Veyance’s operations would be combined with its ContiTech division.

Veyance began supplying belts to NASCAR in 1985 and is a longtime preferred belt supplier to the racing industry, according to Continental.

“This is an exciting milestone that will open the door to innovations that will benefit our customers,” says Nick Gulli, vice president and segment leader Aftermarket NAFTA.

“Just as importantly, the products, performance and people they have come to trust have not changed. Customers can find the same great products, including the same Quiet Channel Technology with the new Elite brand name and packaging. The same belts chosen by NASCAR teams are available straight off the shelf in major auto parts stores and auto service centers.”

The Elite brand includes a wide range of aftermarket products for both automotive and heavy-duty applications. Among these products are:

* Elite Poly-V belts with Quiet Channel Technology;

* Elite timing belts and kits;

* Elite belt tensioners with Accu-Drive Technology; and

* Elite automotive heaters and radiator hoses.

For more information on Elite brand belts, visit www.thequietbelt.com.

I always use OEM belts. Too hard to track which belt makers are still good or have turned bad.

I have typically used Gates and never had a problem. I am not a fan of Dayco, had a couple fail early (not break, just wear out).

Replaced the belts on my Frontier with Gates about a year and a half ago. Both my sons have Corollas and I put Bando belts on their cars last summer. Happy with both brands.

Use only Honda OEM belts,why do you want to chance replacing a no name several times,when once with a OME belt does it!

I once had a Honda / Acura application AC belt from Conti-tech split on me about 30 mins after I left the mechanic's shop. It was a belt from 2014, not sure if it was installation error or random defect though. The mechanic put in a Gate and it has been 2 years with no problem.

Also had to return a Dayco Poly Cog once because the "Cogs" were squished and mushed upon arrival, may also be a handling issue instead of manufacturing.

I am running Gates serpentine belt in my 04 camry, 30,000 miles no problems and no noise, etc.
a Dayco serpentine belt in my moms Murano. Again, no problems...
both have a 3 year warranty. I am sure either brand would do well.
