Protection for Your Honda

When you get a new Honda, the dealership supplies a factory warranty that lasts for a few years to lessen the stress of potential manufacturer or workmanship errors. But what happens once it ends? A Honda extended warranty can protect you and your vehicle against costly repairs and maintenance that your factory warranty may not cover.
Keep reading to learn what’s included in a Honda extended warranty, why this coverage is important, and how to get the best coverage at an affordable price at CARCHEX.
Factory warranties generally include two types of warranties:
Honda’s limited factory warranty goes a bit more in-depth. Take a look at what is covered by a Honda limited factory warranty:
|3-Year/36,000 Mile Limited Vehicle Warranty||All new Honda vehicles have this coverage for any defective material parts or workmanship errors.|
|5-Year/60,000 Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty||All new Honda vehicles are covered by this warranty. Only the parts of the car that provide power and make it move are included covered, like the engine, transmission and transaxle, and the front-wheel and rear-wheel drive systems.|
|3-Year/36,000 Mile Accessory Limited Warranty||All Honda Genuine Accessories are covered when installed at the time of new-vehicle purchase or if they’re purchased from a Honda dealer. Purchased accessories are only given a one-year limited warranty.|
|3-Year/36,000 Mile Remanufactured Parts Limited Warranty||Remanufactured Honda parts are covered under this warranty.|
|5-Year Unlimited Miles Corrosion Limited Warranty||This covers any corrosion that occurs on your vehicle during this time period. Honda will repair or replace any of your vehicle’s original body panel that rusts completely through from the inside out.|
Even though you think you may have enough coverage for your Honda vehicle, remember that these contracts do not cover your entire vehicle, making you responsible for those repairs.
Honda’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover these fixes, unless they are needed as part of a warranty repair or are due to a defect in material or workmanship:
You may be tempted to ignore the idea of purchasing an extended warranty for your Honda. The Honda Accord, Civic, and CR-V are among some of Honda’s top models to take you to 300,000 miles. So, it’s going to last forever, right? You might think so. While Honda was presented with two performance awards and one dependability award by J.D. Power in 2018, there are still common mechanical problems that can occur and will require repair.
Some of the biggest issues with Hondas include:
Over time, these car repairs can add up. Once you are no longer under Honda’s limited factory warranty, you are forced to pay for these repairs out of pocket, unless you have a Honda extended warranty.
Take a look at additional Honda repairs and their associated costs without an extended warranty:
While Hondas might be known as reliable cars, expensive repairs don’t pay for themselves. You might be tempted to wait for your manufacturer’s warranty to expire before you even consider an extended Honda car warranty. Not waiting until your manufacturer’s warranty expires and getting additional coverage can save you hundreds on costly repairs. You can never be too prepared.
When it comes to purchasing a Honda extended warranty, you’re generally have two choices: purchase an extended warranty through your dealer or purchase your plan through a third-party supplier, like CARCHEX.
Honda offers Honda Care, an extended vehicle service contract with four levels of coverage, including bumper-to-bumper coverage, as well as an add-on option for Honda Care Sentinel oil change coverage. CARCHEX provides five levels of coverage, from basic to exclusionary coverage, which means that most components are covered unless stated otherwise.
It may seem like a huge decision to make, but knowing what to look for when you’re shopping for the best, affordable extended coverage for your Honda before you buy helps. The most respected warranties will offer the following:
Fortunately, CARCHEX meets all of these criteria, and then some.
There are multiple options when it comes to third-party extended warranty providers, but as you can see, CARCHEX leads the competition.
The common theme between a dealership warranty and—in Honda’s case—extended coverage like Honda Care is that the dealer tries to maintain control of your car’s protection, reducing the amount of flexibility you have. They try to get more money within your warranty’s 36-month time period by convincing you to bring your car to a dealership whenever you need a repair.
When you choose a third-party warranty provider, here is what you gain:
When you buy extended coverage from a third-party warranty company, you are buying a separate product instead of rolling the warranty price into your car purchase. Factory warranties are tacked on to your purchase price, meaning you’ll pay more interest each month.
Third-party warranty companies work with multiple providers to find you the best price on the market. They also allow you to choose your own repair facility instead of forcing you to go to a dealership or specific repair shop.
Instead of having Honda tell you what’s covered, third-party providers will help you determine what is best for you and your vehicle.
Take a look at our five levels of coverage provided by CARCHEX below. We offer a variety of customizable protection plans within these levels.
Keep everything in your Honda protected with these Extended Vehicle Protection Plans, from your brakes, cooling system, and fuel delivery components to your drive axle system, engine, and air conditioning.

Yes. Both the extended auto warranties provided by Honda and the CARCHEX extended auto warranties are transferable.
Honda Care is the extended car warranty provided by the Honda dealership. Coverage lasts up to 8 years/120,000 miles, depending on the type of plan you purchase. Plans include those for new vehicles, pre-owned vehicles, certified additional coverage, and powertrain coverage (engine, transmission, drive axle and seals/gaskets).
Except for the powertrain extended warranty, Honda Care plans cover the following components:
All Honda Care plans also cover these peace of mind benefits:
We know that cost is a large factor in your decision to purchase an extended car warranty. The cost of your extended warranty is determined by your vehicle’s model, condition, and plan deductible.
Typical dealership warranties can cost between $1,000 and $1,500. However, as a third-party provider, CARCHEX offers more competitive options with no pressure to purchase right away. Plus, we work with industry leaders all competing for your business. That way, we can get you the lowest price on the market.
