    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?

  • 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.

  • stockdoxstockdox Posts: 14

    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!
  • Hi, new here. Buying a new 2014 Accord EL-X. Is there a single post with useful information on warranty information for new car? Have simple questions like -
    Should I buy an extended warranty with the car purchase or later? How much are the expected prices? Main warranty dealers websites.
  • I just puchased new 2014 honda accord and find I'm being charged $100 per month for 8 years. This sounds crazy. Whart do you think? I can cancel
  • 8 year warranty includes ket fob and treatment on interior and exterior . Fidelity warranty co.
  • Bought 7yr/100k, 0$ ded. for $835 on a 2012 Pilot CPO w/ 23K miles on it.
    Basically, with factory + 1 yr CPO, i'm getting 3 extra year on top of it.

    Can anyone confirm that it can be cancelled and get premium refunded if no claim has been made over life of warranty? if so, then is there any time limit to do so?
    I asked same ques to dealer and he told me NO refunds, only policy transfer allowed (with 50$ fee).

    Thanks,
  • I just bought a 2015 Honda Civic Hybrid and was looking for quotes around. The best quotes I have received for Honda Auto Care Extended Warranty from online Honda dealers for 8Y/100K(D80) & 8Y/120K(D82) were from Hyannis Honda but they don't sell the coverage for California. The next best was Saccuci at 985 & 1110 respectively.

    Can anyone confirm if the Honda Care warranty quotes are same between Honda Civic & Honda Civic Hybrid?

    People buy a Honda for, at least partially, their reliability. One benefit of such reliability is to minimize the risk of having an expensive repair after the factory warranty expires. Consumer Reports, and other publications, strongly recommend against an extended service contract, particularly for a reliable vehicle such as Honda.

    Anyone considering an extended service contract on a Honda should ask themselves if spending money on a product which is priced by the provider of the service contract to make them a nice profit is wise? As CR has stated, the majority of people purchasing an extended service contract will not recover the cost of that contract.

    A better method is to take the money required for the extended service contract, whether one payment or a monthly payment, and put it into a savings account. Should a repair occur the money is available. However, if no repair occur the money is still available to the car buyer.

    It is good to recognize an extended service contract is priced by the provider to cover the expected cost of all covered repairs plus the administrative costs of the provider plus a profit to the provider. In addition, the dealer who sells the contract also adds a profit. This means for any extended service contract, the expected average payout for repairs is likely less than one half of the selling price of the contract. Foe example, a dealer may attempt to sell at $2,000 when the average payout will be closer to $800. Is paying $2,000 for $800 in covered repairs a good buy?

    That's your opinion & you're certainly entitled to it, but I disagree.  If you can buy a HondaCare plan at a good price (such as from Sacucci or others), it's not a bad investment.  Most Hondas have CVT's and their long term reliability is not fully known.  Plus with the amount of electronics on cars nowadays, it doesn't take much to get a $1k repair bill after the warranty is done.  I'm willing to pay the price for the plan but if you don't want to, I respect that decision and will not try to tell you that is wrong.

    I received quotes from Hyannis and Curry. Decided to go with the 8/120 and $0 deductible from Hyannis as it was $155 cheaper than Curry.

    Bob Leab was answered all my questions and gave me everything I asked for to review prior to making the purchase. Easy and painless and provides some piece of mind for a long time and a lot of miles.

    While I agree that people tend to buy a Honda at least in part due to its reliability, I had a 1998 Accord EX-V6 and a 1999 Odyssey that both needed a transmission at ~90K (both were first year vehicles and the '98 was the Accord's first year with a V6).

    The warranty for Honda Civic Hybrid is different and higher than Honda Civic. Just wanted to answer my own question.
  • l_ann_fl_ann_f Posts: 2
    Got a quote from Saccucci for $1,110 for a 2015 Civic for 8 years/ 120,000 miles. Called the dealer selling me the car and they gave it to me for $1,210. Got a really good price on the car so I went with the dealer who sold me the car. The dealer originally quoted $1,980. Big difference.

    Should I buy Honda Care (8yrs/120k miles) after purchasing a new car or just before the 3yrs/36k miles standard warranty ends? Is there a price difference if I wait until 2-3 years later, i.e. do I get a better price if I get it on a new car?

    In addition, what would be other considerations of getting Honda Care on day 1? I saw another post on Edmunds that said if you financed through Honda, it is very difficult to get your insurance premium back because it goes back to Honda and not you. Also, what happens if you total your car in the 1st year? Is the premium "lost" or do you get a refunded for the unused 7 year portion?

    You should buy the warranty before the 6 months/6,000 mile mark to get the best pricing.

    I have also heard about the refund not going back to the purchaser in the event that he/she financed it.
    If the vehicle is totaled or stolen, I am pretty sure you get a refund of the portion you didn't use, depending on how long you had the vehicle at the time.

    Im glad i looked on here before buying a warranty when i bought my new Honda Civic 2 months ago. They wanted to sell me the 7yr/100mi warranty for $2k!
  • vinnygvinnyg N.Y.Posts: 69
    Don't forget that the online dealers do not charge sales tax as well, so even if you were to have your dealer match their pricing, you still will be paying more once the tax is added. I know where I am located in N.Y., if I were to get the dealer to match the online pricing of $1330, tax here would be over $100, which can be a couple of tanks of gas. Better the money goes in your pocket that to the dealer's vacation home.

    Thanks to everyone here for their contributions. I just used Edmunds.com to purchase a 2015 Honda Civic EX-L. Also purchased a Honda Care warranty online from Saccucci Honda after reading this forum. It was a pretty painless transaction, unlike the experience in the dealership finance office.
