The Benefits of an Extended Factory Warranty

A Satisified Honda CustomerThe fine folks at Middletown Honda are looking out for your best interest in every aspect of car owning, and today we’d like to give you some tips regarding extended warranties. The fact is, if you have an extended warranty for your smartphone or laptop, but not your car, then maybe its time to rethink your priorities. Your car is probably your most valuable possession other than real estate, and you need it to last a lot longer than your latest gadget. Since you depend on your vehicle for transportation day in and day out, you don’t want your car to go unprotected after the original factory warranty expires. That’s where an extended warranty policy can kick in and allow you to continue driving with peace of mind.

What is a Honda Extended Warranty?

The Honda bumper-to-bumper factory warranty lasts for an excellent three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. At the end of the factory warranty you can either elect to go without coverage and pay for repairs or maintenance yourself, or elect to extend your factory warranty.

The best plan of action is to renew your warranty before your factory warranty ends. If you renew before the expiration of your existing warranty your rates will be much lower and you may qualify for better and longer coverage terms. Also, if you renew while the vehicle is covered you cannot be denied extended coverage due to a pre-existing condition.

Warranties Are Available

Even if your vehicle has expired, there are several options for extended coverage. Contact your local Honda dealership to find out more about Honda Extended warranty coverage. Here are a few of the extended warranty options available:

  • •   A bumper-to-bumper warranty covers everything but scheduled maintenance.
  • •   A used car warranty covers engine, transmission, steering, electrical, suspension, brakes, and more.
  • •   A powertrain warranty just covers the engine, transmission, and drive train.

An extended factory warranty is generally as much as 30% less expensive than third party warranties. Since Honda certified mechanics know your vehicle inside and out, you can rest assured that your car will get the best kind of care and maintenance.
