You can purchase Honda care for your Honda Ridgeline at any time within the original full factory warranty. However, the best time to buy is when your Ridgeline is still new and has less than 6,000 miles. This is when the longest plans, at the best pricing, are available. At this point, your Ridgeline could be covered as long as 8 years or 120,000 miles. Honda Care for new vehicles starts from the original purchase date of your vehicle with zero miles.
Honda Care coverage for a Honda Ridgeline with over 6,000 miles is considered a used vehicle plan. There is absolutely no difference in covered components between new Honda Ridgeline and used Honda Ridgeline plans. The difference is that the time and mileage for used plans start on the day that you buy the plan. The term starts on the plan purchase date and the mileage is in addition to your odometer reading on the day you purchase the plan.
