Honda offers four different plans for new, certified pre-owned, and pre-owned Honda vehicles. You can also sign up for Honda Care if you don’t have a Honda vehicle. This generally isn’t recommended, as you’ll still need to have repairs to your non-Honda vehicle done at a Honda dealership.
Honda also offers a maintenance plan for purchase. While Honda doesn’t provide free maintenance for your vehicle, the maintenance plan gives you the chance to buy a bundle of oil changes and other maintenance services up front.
There are two types of coverage:
- Component Coverage
- Powertrain Coverage
Honda Care Component Coverage is available for:
Component Coverage is the most extensive Honda Care plan available. It offers exclusionary coverage. This means every system of your car is covered except for a list of excluded parts.
Some excluded parts of the Component Coverage plan are:
- Non-genuine Honda Parts
- Cables, belts, and hoses
- Non-Honda electronic or audio accessories
- Windshields and glass
- Oil changes and other routine maintenance
Powertrain coverage is available only for pre-owned vehicles. It offers basic protection from costly repairs. Covered parts include:
- Drive axle
- Seals, gaskets, and fluids
Are Used Vehicles Covered?
You can cover your used Honda under a Honda Care plan. Vehicles must be a 2016 or newer and have fewer than 36,000 miles on them. Once a Honda vehicle falls outside these requirements, Honda Care is no longer an option.
How Much Does Honda Care Cost?
Pricing for Honda Care depends on a number of factors. For example, you can choose a plan with a deductible or one with a $0 deductible. The $0 deductible plan is more expensive. Other factors in the price of Honda Care include:
- Vehicle age
- Honda model
Honda Care Roadside Assistance
One benefit offered by Honda Care is roadside assistance, which includes:
- Towing services
- Lockout assistance
- Battery jump-start
- Tire change
- Fuel delivery
If you need a rental car while a covered repair is being made, Honda Care provides rental car reimbursement up to $35 a day for up to six days.
Similarly, Honda Care includes trip interruption service if your car breaks down 100 miles or more away from home. The plan provides $100 a day for up to three days for meals and lodging.
