Honda Warranty: A Comprehensive Comparison Between Brands

Summary

Honda’s a little more generous when it comes to roadside assistance compared to Toyota.

Apparently, you need to earn FordPass rewards then you can redeem them accordingly. Whereas Honda Cares enough to offer a straightforward maintenance plan in regard.

Kia offers pre-paid maintenance plans, and the pricing is elusive of course. Honda Cares enough not to do donuts around the parking lot, opposed to beating around the bush that is.

Subaru doesn’t seem to offer a complimentary maintenance plan. Then again, trying to information on the manufacturer’s website’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Nissan only offers prepaid maintenance plans, Honda Cares enough to go the extra mile, 1 year old and with fewer than 12,000 miles to be exact.

In summary, Honda offers a competitive car warranty for all new Honda cars, trucks, and SUVs, including hybrid cars and electric cars as well. And if you’re open to purchasing a certified preowned vehicle or one of our used vehicles, consider opting for an extended used car warranty. To learn more about Honda’s certified preowned program or if you have any additional questions, we can be reached by dialing (425) 355-7500. We look forward to hearing from you.
