FAQ: What does a Honda extended warranty cover?

Unlike Honda’s factory warranty, which covers all parts of the vehicle when you buy a new car, the extended Honda warranty offered by Honda dealerships is a limited warranty. Although there are advantages, Honda’s extended auto warranty contract does not include the comprehensive or ‘bumper-to-bumper’ coverage that the factory warranty offers. Typically, these warranties are only available to certified pre-owned vehicles or cars still covered by the factory warranty and only repair or replace a limited number of vehicle components.

What Is Included?

Honda’s extended warranties, also known as Honda Care, typically cover repairs and replacements for a variety of components, depending on the vehicle service contract terms and conditions. However, the protected parts and systems vary based on the tier of coverage for which the vehicle qualifies. For example, the Honda Plus Comprehensive Plan, their exclusionary extended warranty option, covers the costs of:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Drive Axles
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Steering
  • Electrical Systems
  • Heating and Cooling
  • Fuel System


In addition, when you buy a car with the Honda Care extended warranty, you will enjoy peace of mind with additional perks such as roadside assistance and towing services.

What Is Excluded?

Certain parts are not eligible for coverage within the Honda extended auto service contract, such as body parts, tires, maintenance materials, glass, trim, carpet, and decorative items. However, the extended car warranty exclusions are not limited only to these, and to get the most out of your plan, you should review your auto protection plan for terms, conditions, and details.
