Why Do You Need an Extended Warranty?
According to J.D. Power, among the midsize car segment, quality of workmanship and reliability are greater drivers for Accord purchases than for the segment overall. In fact, Accord buyers are 6% more likely to be swayed by reliability.
And they’re not wrong. Honda ranks first in RepairPal’s 2019 Reliability Ranking. The CR-V, Fit, Civic, and Accord all made the Top 20 in the ranking. So, why would you need a Honda Accord extended warranty? Isn’t your vehicle reliable enough?
Of course, even with high reliability rankings, your Honda Accord can still cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs. An extended warranty, or extended vehicle service contract, protects you from the financial stress of a mechanical breakdown.
How Much Does a Honda Accord Cost to Repair?
There are a few common problems that Accord drivers report. Here are a few common repairs and their respective costs, pulled from RepairPal data:
These numbers can increase into the thousands for full engine or transmission replacements. If you don’t have that kind of money already saved in your emergency fund, then it can be difficult to get out of a bad situation.
An extended warranty can cost less than $1,500 and be paid in monthly installments over the course of one year or more.
What Is Honda Care?
Honda Accord ranks as one of the most reliable cars on the road, making up almost 20% of Honda’s sales in the U.S. for 2019. When you’re driving one of the safest vehicles on the road, you want to keep it protected past the limits of its original manufacturer’s warranty.
Honda Care is the Honda brand’s extended protection program. If you’re looking for a Honda Accord extended warranty, then you have the option of any four coverage plans:
- New Vehicle Coverage
- Pre-Owned Vehicle Coverage
- Certified Additional Coverage
- Powertrain Coverage
New Vehicle, Pre-Owned, and Certified Additional Coverage plans include the vehicle’s powertrain, electronics, suspension, steering, braking, heating, cooling, and other vehicle systems. The Powertrain plan (engine, transmission, drive axle) is available for pre-owned vehicles only.
With a Honda Accord extended warranty, you cut the risk of having to pay out-of-pocket costs for repairs on your vehicle.
Even though Honda Care offers terms up to eight years or 120,000 miles, the program won’t cover vehicles for as long as a third-party auto warranty company.
