Honda Extended Warranties Pricing and Info

  • Thanks. I did call Honda Care, and just for the amusement of this board, here is the update ...

    Honda Care, represented by a bright, helpful woman on the phone, said that the dealer who I bought the extended warranty from in 2004 did not have to sign the cancellation form. Because I traded it into another Honda dealer, THAT dealer could sign it. I asked her to confirm my understanding, that I could ask the dealer I traded to, to sign. She said, "That's right."

    So last night I took the cancellation form to the dealer I traded the van to. They looked at me like I was crazy. Their finance person said that if they sign it, then that refund comes out of that dealer's funds/account. They agreed to try to contact Pohanka for me because they knew someone there. But they said they couldn't sign it.

    So, for about the fifth time in this car buying, trade-in process, I have different representatives of the organizations involved - some of them Honda - contradicting each other. :confuse:

    I recently purchased a 2010 Honda Civic EX-L and with that I got the extended warranty for $1095.00 plus the tax. The warranty was for 7 years 80,000 miles. I would like to know if that is a good price for the warranty and could I've purchased the warranty on line without out going threw a Dealership. If anyone could answer that for me I would appreciate. Also If I could of purchased it on line how would I do it, what is the website that I can go to in order to purchased it. I hope someone can help me out. Thank you

    Well Honda doesn't let you do the full purchase procedure online anymore. But you can go to some dealers website and request a quote. Then there will be instructions on how you can complete the purchase should you be interested. Some examples of these websites are as follows:

    Thank you jet10000, I'm going to e-mail those sites
  • And as an update to the warranty cancellation saga ...

    The local dealer (Go Honda) faxed the cancellation notice to HondaCare, because the dealer whom I bought the HondaCare warranty from in 2004 (Pohanka Honda) wouldn't call me back.

    A week passes. On Tuesday, I get a letter back from HondaCare with a copy of that fax and yellow highlight over "copy of odometer statement." I hadn't included one because I didn't have it and the dealer that I traded the car into faxed the form in, so I thought they could vouch for the mileage.

    As I pondered my next step, two days later I received a SEPARATE letter from HondaCare that said they would be sending me a check for the pro rated portion of the warranty within two weeks.

    I hadn't done anything in those two days. I guess all's well that ends well, assuming I actually receive that check.

    Yes, I remember when I sent in for my pro-rate, I just got an odometer printout from the dealer I traded it in to, sent that with the form from the dealer I bought the Honda Care from, and they sent me the check.

    Probably some people to forget to ask for their pro-rate. But it lowers the cost of Honda Care even more if you get it.
  • One thing about Honda Care that made me very unhappy with Honda Company because Honda Care is an insurance policy, why can't they sell it with a standard premium? Every dealer has different premium to different customer, depended on how's stupid you looked to those dealer animals.
    Another issue about buying Honda Care is if you are a resident of California or Florida, you cannot buy Honda Care online from dealer in other state, but you can buy over the phone, Well, if you want to trade in your car in the future, it is not easy to find your dealer that you buy Honda Care by phone to sign the cancellation for you.
    I hate to buy car, because I hate those car sale man and/or sale woman.

    Well, if you want that, then you can move to state of Florida. Every dealer in Florida is required by state insurance law to sell Honda Care at one very high price. I'm sure if Honda mandated the one price policy that you requested, then the price would be much higher than you could buy it for now.

    I for one would rather pay lower prices and have choice. But as I said to get the one price option that you want, you can go to Florida.

    Well, if you want to trade in your car in the future, it is not easy to find your dealer that you buy Honda Care by phone to sign the cancellation for you.

    It was easy for me, I didn't have a problem at all.

    Well, next time you're ready to buy a car, check out our dealership ratings & reviews first, then go to one with positive comments from other buyers. Some dealerships & salespeople are better than others.

  • The honda extended warranty is a scam, and if you try to cancel they make you pay a fee.

    We were told it would cover everything but wiper blades and tires. We had 6 things go wrong our first year. Clips, External Trim, Fuses, none of which where covered.

    I knew it was a scam, but my wife wanted it. If you are offered this, turn it down.

    There is no "scam". Your contract documents contained a full description of what was and was not covered. Instead of listening to what somebody told you, all you needed to do is read the contract documents.

    If you received the documents and did not think what was covered would be worth it, you could have canceled the contract within the first 60 days of the coverage period and received a full refund.

    The responsibility lies with you to know to what you are agreeing.

    Did you buy your car used?
  • Beside of Mileages, Years and Price we pay, How many type of Honda Care that Honda is offering?

    You weren't scammed, those are ordinary wear and tear items, what warranty covers wiper blades or clips???? That's ridiculous.

    "BMW, for one." Yes, they are more honest about the premium you pay up front for the cost of their car (I respect that about them, but I'm not sure I could ever afford a new one or rationalize the cost - I put my own premium on things other than performance comparison and luxury - but I admit to part-time salavation when I see an M go by).

    What I don't understand is, if this is a new car what dealership worth its salt wouldn't address clips and body molding within the first three year bumper to bumper warranty? This is an odd situation. As for wiper blades, they wear out in 6 mos to 1 year (though I admit to using poor performing worn blades for up to two years - dumb on my part). Go ahead and buy a beemer if you want to pay for those blades up front for five years.

    If Koenig is dealing with a new car, depending on the state (all have different tort/common law and many have different laws on the books), one could make a case against the dealership and salesperson regarding misrepresentation (they being uniquely qualified to understand and represent their product), but that can be countered (depending on the state) with the purchasers obligation to fully read the contract and ask questions before signing.

    Sounds like some sour grapes coupled with a dealership not stepping up to the plate on minor details of the car within the first three years of ownership (if this is a new car - does it have to be if we are talking about a genuine Honda Care EW product?). Of course we don't have all the facts - so rarely do. But Honda is in a unique situation with the recent downfall of Toyota - they need to capitalize in every way possible to earn life time customers - dumb on any Honda Dealer's part to diss a customer unless that customer is from hell.

    Second try!

  • Hi all,

    Beside the price we paid, mileage and years of coverage, how many type of Honda Care Extended Warranty that Honda is offering? This is very confusing :)

    Thanks

    Beside the price we paid, mileage and years of coverage, how many type of Honda Care Extended Warranty that Honda is offering?

    I think the answer to that question would be just one. For whatever term you purchase it for, it covers the same items. Was there something that led you to believe that there is more than one type they offer?
  • I just wondered, because some greedy dealers want $2300 and some just wanted for $1150 for the same term, and same miles :confuse:
