    Honda Odyssey 6yr/100K $0 Ded Honda Care $940 from Hyannis Honda

  • altinkeraltinker Posts: 7

    I did get a quote for the 8yr/120K warranty at $1230 from a Massachusetts dealer; however, I used it as a negotiating item when trying to get the lowest price for car/options/warranty/interest rate. The dealer charged me $1595 for the service contract and said that was the lowest they can go because they normally sell it for $3000 or $3500, but they threw in window tinting and some accessories at cost to get me down to $200 lower than my lowest quote. I'm okay with my local dealership making a bit of profit, but not an exorbitant amount -- like 200 or 300%.

    The dealer also sold a non-Honda care warranty (they probably get better profit on it), and I was armed with info when I went in there. Only one local dealer was able to give it to me at the $1230 price, but the cost for the car, accessories, and interest rate were all higher. So, it worked out in the long run.

    I owned a Mercedes C230 for 11 years -- I tend to keep my cars. I had to have my computer display replaced once, and that was $1000. I know that something is going to break in 8 years on most cars. The warranty is totally worth it to me.

    It seemed strange to me that my dealer had Honda Care available, but they were pushing a third party manufacturer's warranty instead. I did some online research, and apparently, there was a lawsuit Saccucci vs. Honda. What happened (I will try to cover the high points as it was a lengthy doc I sifted through) -- a customer went into a dealership and bought a car and the Honda Care warranty at regular dealer prices. Then, they researched the warranty and saw that Saccucci sold it for way cheaper. They flipped out on the dealer and said that they were never going to do business with the dealer, and further, they were never going to buy a Honda. They accused the dealer of cheating them. So, the dealer contacted HQ, and HQ stopped Internet sales of the Honda Car VSC's temporarily. Saccucci filed a lawsuit and later an appeal, but Honda won. I didn't do further research to see how they are able to sell VSC's. But, I am guessing that dealers have Honda Care available, but they push the third party warranty because a customer can't accuse them of cheating them on pricing that way.

    My dealer did not even bother to try and sell me a Honda Care Warranty but tried to scare me into paying over 3000 for a non-Honda warranty and up to over 5500 on anti theft options and maintenance plans and additional coverage. I bought Honda Care warranty from Saccucci mainly because I support consumer right to get a fair price on a warranty. The thing with Honda Care warranty is that they are cancel-able and you are refunded the unused portion. When people find they were taken on purchasing a Honda Care warranty, they cancel and buy it from someone else. Of course dealers do not want you to be able to cancel so they sell you a third party product.

    I just purchased an 8 year, 120,000 mile Honda Care warranty / with a 100.00 deductible from Bernardi Honda in Massachusetts for $ 1185.00. The price of the plan is a bit more than Saccucci Honda (often one of the lowest) but you can spread the payments out over 12 months by purchasing from Bernardi versus paying the whole shot at once... Plus - the dealer gives you a 30.00 gift certificate to Bernardi parts (useful for some touch up paint or a keychain) ... All in all- not bad.

    Recently purchased 8-year, 120,000 mile, 0 deductible Honda Care coverage from www.hyannishondacare.com for $1075. Very responsive and easy to work with. Dealer where I purchased the Accord was pushing a 3d party warranty for $1600+. Actually asked me to sign the 3d party pricing sheet stating that I was declining the coverage.

    I just got my Accord LX and ot $960 - 6yr 120k Honda care. I got a quote from Curry Honda, and asked the dealer if they could at least match. They said no, its below there cost. Then during the signing of the paperwork they gave me the warrenty paper and it was for $960, he said he did not know they would do that as its costing them money. Ya ok :)

    Question, some people mention the 8yr - 120yr "wrap" - is that different from the regular Honda Care?

  • hondadriverhondadriver Posts: 5

    Plan code D62 is 6 years/120K/0 deductible. Same but 8 years is code D82. There appear to be 13 plans with zero deductible and 10 with $100 deductible option.

    I'm in the market for an 8 yr/120,000/$0 deductible plan for my 2013 Honda Accord V6 touring. I've called a bunch of dealers trying to get prices for HondaCare extended warranties. The best price I've gotten is $1135 for an 8 year/120,000 mile/$0 deductible plan from Hyannis Honda. A second dealer (College Hills) has come close, with a price of $1150 for the same plan.

    Are these the best prices I can get right now? Also, do any dealers offer good prices AND the payment plan without extra cost? Thanks for any information.

    My pricing sheet from Saccucci for my 2014 Accord V6 was 1200 for that coverage, so that seems good to me. If you want the payment plan, its going to cost you, plain and simple. Maybe I am old school, but if you have the money to blow on a 35,000 automobile then you probably should have an extra $1000 lying around.

  • So, I've gotten a wealth of good intelligence on this forum. I'm considering the 8/120 through Hyannis. But I had another question regarding a package that the F&I guy at my dealer pitched.

    Essentially a cosmetic plan covering dents, dings, windshield, rims, and tires for 5 years. $699.

    I dismissed it, but my wife is really keen on it so that she can keep her car pretty. I'm wondering if there are better prices for this type of plan out there. I've tried searching online but can't seem to find much that matches and none discuss pricing. Thoughts?

    I don't believe Honda offers this kind of protection so it is third party. Personally, I would stay clear of any service agreement that is not factory.

    Correct, third party. Thanks for the feedback.

  • Is the Honda Extended Care something that can be purchased separately from the the dealer you purchase the car from? If so, is the new dealer selling the warranty the one that has to service the car?

    Can Honda sell this service directly?

    When they say the warranty is for 6 or 8 years, is that including the base 3 year manufacturer warranty?

    If I choose not to purchase it at the car purchase time, can this be acquired before the 36 month warranty is over?

    I'm being offered 1,400 US for a 6y/100K base plan for my Odyssey EX 2015 in central NJ.

    Thanks!
