Are Extended Warranties Worth It?

Two Men Shaking Hands

As you finalize your Honda vehicle purchase, you may still have questions about this crucial topic: should I buy extended warranties? Your Honda vehicle comes standard with a limited warranty, but you have the option to purchase an extended warranty to add perks and lengthen your coverage term.

What are the benefits of Honda Care, and are extended warranties worth it? You’ll be covered on a wider range of electrical components, and receive increased roadside assistance and travel perks. Read on to learn how extended warranties benefit Lakewood and Freehold drivers:

Honda Limited Warranty

Your new Honda vehicle automatically comes with a New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which is good for three years or 36,000 miles and includes 24-hour emergency roadside assistance. Repair coverage falls into two main areas, Bumper-to-Bumper and Powertrain coverage:

  • Honda Bumper-to-Bumper Coverage — Covers air conditioning unit, battery, audio system, and other electrical components.
  • Honda Powertrain Coverage — Covers engine, transmission and transaxle, drivetrain, and restraint system, as well as repair and replacement of all powertrain parts.

Keep in mind that your warranty requires any maintenance or repairs be performed at a certified Honda dealership. Schedule service at Honda Universe for high-caliber work from certified Honda technicians!

What is the Honda Extended Warranty?

Here’s another good question that we hear often from Jackson drivers: “Should I buy extended warranties even if i’m not sure I’ll need it?” Actually, you can add on an extended warranty any time before your Honda vehicle reaches the 3-year or 36,000-mile mark. That said, the increased component coverage on your extended warranty can make your limited warranty even more comprehensive, should you choose to apply both at the time you purchase your Honda vehicle. So are extended warranties worth it? It depends how comfortable you feel with limited warranty coverage. Extended warranty covered repairs are taken care of by Honda, so you won’t owe a penny. Other key perks include:

  • 8 years/120,000 miles
  • Extensive component coverage for Honda parts
  • 24-hour Roadside Assistance — Hassle-free towing, lock-out assistance, jump starts, tire changes, and fuel delivery.
  • Concierge Emergency Service — Speak with a human being (!) in the event of an auto accident for emergency cash advance, airline ticket purchases, insurance claims, and personal item replacement services.
