Honda announces five-year unlimited-km warranty

Honda Australia has increased its standard vehicle warranty, bumping it up to a more competitive five-year, unlimited-kilometre period

Honda announces five-year unlimited-km warranty

Honda has announced that all new cars sold from July 1 will be covered by a more generous five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, a significant improvement over the three-year, 100,000km warranty it replaces.

The new warranty period applies across the range, and extends to selected dealer demonstrator vehicles. If you bought a new Honda in the past two days, congratulations – your long-term costs of ownership just got a little smaller.

The only exceptions are cars used for commercial purposes, which fall under a five-year, 140,000km warranty scheme – the same length as Honda’s previous extended warranty offering dubbed Honda Warranty Plus.

“Honda has an envied reputation for quality and reliability, the depth of engineering inherent in our vehicles is something our customers can trust,” Honda Australia director Stephen Collins said in a statement.

“So we’re taking things a big step further with this 5-year warranty announcement.

“Given the quality of Honda vehicles they can sometimes be perceived as more expensive, when this is simply not the case. We encourage new car buyers to take a look at our pricing, our ownership costs and our new 5-year warranty against the competition.”

The new warranty puts Honda on an equal footing with Hyundai, Renault and Skoda, which all offer identical warranty periods. Only Kia (7yrs/unlimited), MG (6yr/unlimited) and Citroen (6yr/unlimited) offer more generous warranties, while Chinese car maker Haval comes close with a 5yr/100,000km offering.
