This plan offers you exclusionary coverage for your vehicle. This means that there really is no list of covered items. Everything is covered, except for those items in the short list of not covered items. No coverage is better for a Honda owner than Honda Care. Honda Care covers things on your vehicle that you didn´t even know you had!


Maintain your vehicle in accordance with its recommended maintenance schedule outlined in your warranty booklet and your Honda Care service contract can do the rest, covering potentially expensive repairs for virtually every component on your vehicle, even items like the timing belt, water pump and constant-velocity joints. If you want extended coverage beyond the original Honda bumper-to-bumper warranty, than there is no better choice than Honda Care.


All repairs will be made by factory-trained Honda technicians at authorized Honda dealerships using only Genuine Honda or American Honda authorized parts, just like your regular Honda warranty. If no Honda dealership is available within towing distance, repairs will be made at a Honda Care-authorized service center. There are many third party companies selling what they call a "Honda extended warranty", but there is only one vehicle service contract honored by Honda dealers all over the country and that is Honda Care.


By eliminating the worry of certain costly automotive repairs for your Honda vehicle beyond the original Honda bumper-to-bumper warranty. Unlike many extended service contracts, Honda's exclusive factory-backed protection package is transferable and is ideal for those who want an extra measure of security for their automotive investment. So relax and enjoy your ride, because you can rely on Honda Care.

Safeguard yourself from certain potentially expensive repair bills for up to 120,000 miles with low or no deductible coverage plus vehicle and travel protection. American Honda Financial Services offers extended service contracts for new Honda automobiles that are still within the original full factory warranty.

If you are purchasing a Certified Honda and wish to upgrade the Honda extended warranty that comes with a certified Honda, you can only upgrade your Honda extended warranty through the dealer that certified your vehicle and only at the time of vehicle purchase.

We have a service contract that's right for you. Check out our Acura Care and Honda Care programs, view our printable Honda Care brochure, or review a sample Honda Care contract. If you have any other questions, visit our FAQs or contact us directly.

  • Honda considers the vehicle to be "new" until 6,000 miles. Up until this point, your vehicle qualifies for up to 8 years/120,000 miles of factory coverage. Once your vehicle exceeds 6,000, it still qualifies for the same benefits, but the term options are reduced (coverage begins from date of service contract). Also by purchasing today, you will instantly be entered into Honda´s roadside assistance program, which provides you with car rental, lock out services, towing and other accompanying benefits of the policy.
  • This plan is backed by the American Honda Finance Corporation (a subsidiary of American Honda Motor Cars Inc.) and is fully endorsed by the Manufacturer. This is not a "third party" or "aftermarket" warranty that some websites, dealerships and insurance companies offer. Enrollment into this program ensures that you are purchasing a plan with a direct affiliation to Honda.
  • Non-Honda owners that drive a Ford can find a great deal on Ford ESP at www.lombardfordwarrantys.com. Like us, they´ve been offering Ford ESP online for many years. In fact, they are the largest online provider in the country. Their online quote system is the most accurate in the business. They even offer plans for higher mileage used Fords.
  • Given the complexity of your vehicle, Honda strongly recommends that your vehicle´s service be provided by a Certified Honda Technician. However, you do have the option of using another service facility if you choose to do so. You must obtain prior authorization from the administrator by calling toll free 1-800-999-5901 before incurring any repair costs. Honda will then authorize the reasonable cost of any repair for a covered component.
  • Coverage for a new-vehicle plan (less than 6,000 miles at time of service contract purchase) begins when the vehicle is originally put into service and at zero miles. Used vehicle plans (greater than 6,000 miles on odometer) begin from the date of service contract purchase.

    Note: There is no differentiation between actual coverages of new or used plans. The only difference is when the service contract begins.
