Honda is a very reliable brand when it comes to cars. Honda cars are known for their longevity. They are pretty durable, and they stay functional for a long time. You don’t have to worry about your car breaking down when you are out on the road in your Honda.
The durability of a Honda car:
When you buy a new Honda car, you have peace of mind that your new car will not give you any trouble for an extended period. You have peace of mind because of the new car’s factory warranty. Even if something does go wrong, the warranty is there to back you up.
Repair expenses :
An analysis by the Canadian Automobile Association shows that the average costs of car maintenance and repair topple over $1,000 per year.
The average cost of replacing parts in Honda cars are:
- Windshield ranges between $190-$400.
- Tie rod is around $193.
- The serpentine drive is $90.
- AC compressor ranges between $1,091-$1380.
Any car can give you trouble, and if you want to avoid these uncalled for expenses, then there is an option of getting an extended car warranty for your Honda.
Honda factory warranty:
Honda offers its factory known as the “No nonsense Warranty.”
Power Train No Nonsense Warranty:
Honda offers a five year or 100,000 Km (whichever comes first) Power Train Warranty that includes engine, transaxle and occupant protection.
New Vehicle Limited Warranty:
Honda’s bumper-to-bumper warranty covers most parts and components for three years or 36,000 miles.
Some additional warranties that Honda offers are:
- Distributor Warranty
- Emission Warranty
- Rust Perforation,
- Surface Corrosion
- Roadside Assistance
- Audio Components
- Integrated Motor Assist System
But all the above-listed warranties are for short periods of time, and keeping track of so many different warranties is a bit of a hassle.
What will happen when you run out of the warranty?
Well, that is anybody’s guess, but typically cars give some trouble after a while. It happens because of material deterioration because of usage, weathering and extreme road conditions. After 100,000km, your Honda needs some additional protection. What if you are traveling and your car breaks down in the middle of the road? (Honda bumper to bumper warranty offer roadside assistance for three years only) Or an expensive component of your car stops working? Wouldn’t it be a good idea to have some backup after your factory warranty expires? That is when you need an extended warranty for your car.
Extended warranty for used Honda cars
There are two types of extended warranties available for Honda cars :
Honda Plus Extended Warranty
Honda dealership offers this warranty for Honda owners. It has eight different plans available as per your requirement. Minimum one is for four years, going up to an 8-year plan.

Like Endurance, some of them are direct providers, while ones like CARCHEX and Autopom! are broker companies. They have very flexible plans for Honda cars and offer them at excellent rates.
