  • To get the best price possible... Ask them to see the cost book. Tell them you understand that the dealer must make some profit, and you have no problem with that. But... You don't think you deserve to pay a large premium, after all, they are making money on the vehicle purchase and possibly financing. Not to mention that if they treat you well, odds are you are going to refer a friend/family member or buy your next vehicle from them.
  • Who did you talk to Pohanka Honda.
    I called the Finance Mgr and he was unaware they are selling this EXTENDED warranty (7YR / 100K / $0 DED) for anything less then $1200.

    Can you email me their name or email address?

    It's not a good idea to post your e-mail address in a public forum as you'll get even more spam. Better to make it public in your Forum profile.

    okay - so I'm about to buy a new Accord EX-L v6 and coincidentally, I also just bought a used 2002 Odyssey with only 10800 miles on it.

    I definitely want to get an extended warranty for the mini. Besides curryhondacare.com - where else should I look? and what do I need to know to make sure I'm comparing apples to apples - are there "honda approved" extended warranty companies that I should stick with?

    As for the Accord, I may want to get the extended warranty there too, but before I can figure out the duration, can someone tell me if these things are generally transferable if I sell the car in 4-5 yrs, but have a 7/100 warranty on it?

    Thanks!

    IMO, you should only buy a Honda Care plan sold by Honda. 3rd party plans tend to have many more problems than manf. sponsored plans.

    And, Yes. You can transfer a Honda Care plan to another private owner should you sell. You can not transfer the plan if you trade the car in to a dealer...it just goes away in that case.

    Be sure to find out if Honda requires a bumper-to-bumper inspection of a used vehicle by a dealership before they'll sell you a HondaCare EW.

    I bought a private party Volvo with 16,900 miles this past August. Any dealer that quoted a price for the VIP (Volvo Increased Protection) extended warranty also required an inspection of the vehicle (one hour's labor charge)--even though the car was still under the original factory warranty. This requirement, obviously, prevented me from getting quotes from dealerships that were beyond driving distance.

    I have two Hondas - an 00 Accord with no warranty and an 02 Ody with 100K $0 deductible. Now I went pricing a little through this very board and the odyboard site and landed with a guy at Moss Honda in Baton Rouge (I'm in New Jersey)whose name I no longer remember who sold me the warranty for a touch over $900. I asked the local dealer for a quote and when they wanted $1,800! When I said "for something this buy will sell me for $900?" they didn't even acknowledge that I'd said anything.

    When I had the big tranny issue (I have had mixed stories on coverage of the 02 tranny - they had done the second gear inspection and pump deal earlier) I was in a rental on their nickel for more than the 3 days the warranty called for and in a bigger vehicle because I need 6 seats. So all told I was in on Tuesday, out on Saturday, in the rental that time and never opened my wallet. All the work got done by the dealership that wouldn't budge on the price. At least their service people are good.

    Hi All:

    Someone led me to Curryhonda.com a few weeks ago and looking over their 5 year/100K $0 and $50 deductible list, Curry charges $55/$65 less for the $0/$50 deductible respectively vs. those posted at Jayhondacare at the 1 year out time frame. That is with the $90 coupon they send you via E-Mail in order to see their pricing and for an Accord w/ less then 1 year on it.

    At the 2 year + mark, Curry was lower by $5 on the $0/$50 deductible.

    At the 3 year + mark, JayHondaCare was lower by $45/$55 respectively on the $0/$50 deductible.

    5 Year/100,000 - 1 year/2 year/3 year

    Curry
    $50 deductible: $735/$795/$915
    $0 deductible: $810/$860/$970

    JayHondaCare
    $50 deductible: $800/$800/$860
    $0 deductible: $865/$865/$925

    I hope this helps and I really hope I didn’t screw up the third grade math ;-)

    Good Luck

  • I recently bought an Element. I got a Honda Care Plan through the dealership. I paid for a 7yr/70000 mile warranty. After careful thought, I definitely want to change the plan to a 10yr/100000 mile warranty. I am sure within 10 years the contract will have paid for itself with one repair. Is this possible to do, also how would I go by doing this? Thanks

    I must be missing something. Where on curryhonda.com's website are they showing extended warranty info?

    Thanks. I will have their prices with me when I pick up my Pilot Tuesday night.

    I didn't purchase the EW on my 2000 Accord, and now have 62,000 miles with no repairs. I'm a little more worried about the Pilot with the AWD mechanism, it's a more complicated vehicle. Also, the EXL has alot more power equipment than the Accord did.

  • does anyone know if 'gap coverage'is negotiable???
  • Do you have to give them your email address to get pricing? I did that a couple of months ago before purchasing a new Honda and received their offer for a discount if I purchased an EW within a short amount of time. I since purchased a new 2005 Accord but haven't decided on a warranty yet and missed the offer. Also, Thanks for the detailed price comparison between CurryHonda and JayHonda xcel.
  • can I still get a extended warranty on a HO that is 2001 or 2003 with 39k miles on it? Im looking into buying one, but scared of all the issues of tranny problems so I figure if I can buy a EW I mind as well.

    What's a HO? Honda I assume? Honda care is sold for vehicles under 24,000 miles. After that the price skyrockets. The 2001 V6 auto's are covered by Honda up to 100K miles, not sure about 2003, call Honda corporate to find out.

    The original 3yr/36K warranty has to still be in effect to then purchase the extended warranty.. If the car is over three years old, or has over 36K miles, you are out of luck..

  • Does the Honda Care plan offer any discounts on tires? We got a flat with only 500 miles on our Odyssey. Luckily it was patchable but an employee in the service area suggested I get the tire warranty because the roads are so bad where I live. She seemed to indicate that if I had it I might be able to get a new tire for only $50.

    Since I have a 2005 Odyssey with Res/Navi I'm starting to think it might not be a bad idea to purchase one of these warranties.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,048
    Hondacare doesn't offer a tire/wheel warranty.. These are usually offered by dealers, and backed by a third-party warranty company..

    Usually, they aren't worth the hassle and expense.. I would avoid them... and the potholes!!

    The way to negotiate on gap coverage is not take it. If you have a trade in or any down payment the coverage is a very, very poor use of your resources.

    I am still having a problem with the concept of an extended warranty on a Honda. When buying a new car today, the purchaser makes a conscious decision to either buy a foreign car or a domestic car. Purchasing the foreign car places self over country (because of the trickle-down of jobs associated with the auto industry) and is justifiable in my opinion if a person has had a history of trouble with a domestic car. Concurrent with the purchase of a foreign car is the expectation that the quality is higher (i.e. presumably the reason it was bought). Buying a foreign car and an extended warranty falls into the "sucker" category in my book. The buyer presumably bought the car for the quality and then does not even believe in the quality because an extended warranty is purchased also. Ford and GM offer equivalent extended warranties. If Japanese vehicles are truly better, make them earn it. Don't treat the cars with "kid gloves (i.e. extended warranties)" and then proclaim them better.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,048
    Most Hondas sold in the U.S. are built in Ohio..

    Even disregarding that.. your characterization of a car purchase placing self over country is just that.. a characterization.. that doesn't make it so... and if it were so.. how does previous trouble with a domestic car factor in? Because your Chevy blew a headgasket, it is okay to place yourself above country? Sounds like a rationalization to me...

    That really doesn't have anything to do with the decision to purchase an extended warranty.. that is a financial decision..

    Shhhewwwwwwww

    No rationalization. I flat out don't care about the fiscal health of the country anymore, I'm set. That's why I bought a Honda. A buyer is blowing his/her money with an extended warranty is the point. If the Japanese cars are higher quality, the extended warranty should come with the purchase price. Otherwise don't BS it with quality, the buyer was lured to buy the car with marketing and fashion and then duped again with an extended warranty. You can make a financial decision to flush $1,000 down the toilet each time you buy a new car, give it to a homeless guy, give it to a slick time-share salesman at the dealership, or better yet, keep it.
  • I heard that the keyless entry in my 98 civic may not work if I install a new stereo. Does anyone know if this is true?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,048
    So... to sum up...

    1) Your decision to buy a Honda means you have placed self over country....

    AND

    2) Every time you buy an extended warranty, you have flushed your money down a toilet. (and, this only applies if the car has a Japanese nameplate?).

    Thanks for stopping by..

    No offense intended. Perhaps the logic is too complex. Good luck with the warranty.
  • heywood1heywood1 Posts: 839
    Your grand pronouncement that extended warranties on Japanese vehicles are a waste of money simply because they are from Japan overlooks one major consideration: All vehicles, including Japanese, are increasingly complex and feature-laden. Repair costs have increased in proportion to the complexity of the vehicles. (The fact that a higher percentage of vehicles are being totaled by insurance companies are also a testimony to increased repair costs).
    ABS brains, throttle modules, power door motors, airbags, and traction control systems all have substantial repair costs. Japanese or not, when they break, they are expensive to repair.

    Perhaps THAT logic is too complex....
  • heywood1heywood1 Posts: 839
    I believe extended warranties are a better value when they're purchased toward the end of the original factory warranty. By that time, you have a better idea about the vehicle's reliability, and have a better perspective as to whether you want to keep it for another 50,000 miles.
