#3503 of 3848 2011 Honda Civic HondaCare Prices
Feb 25, 2011 (11:47 am)
Hello, I looked through many pages of this thread. It started way back on 2002 I believe, and the most thorough Honda Care prices seem to be fairly dated. I wondered if people have 2011 quotes on the Honda Care - 8/125,000/0 package? I checked at http://www.saccuccihondacare.com/ and they have quoted $960.00. I emailed a couple other places that I saw on the list such as Moss Honda of Lafayette, Louisiana, and am waiting for replies. I appreciate this thread, and all who have kept it going. Much thanks in advance.

I think it is good price. Please tell me where did you get it since I am also shopping for an extended warantee.

Do you know why I can't seem to order a 5 year (8 total) HC for my 2008 S2000? The web sites SHOW plans up to 8 total years, but the plans I am being offered are all 36 month add on plans (for 72 month total). Since the new car powertrain warranty is 60 months already, buying HC only adds 1year to the powertrain and 3 to the rest of the car (what is covered, that is).

To get the 8 year Honda Care you have to buy it within the first 6,000 miles the vehicle is in service. After that, you can only get add-on plans and those decrease in availability as the vehicles approaches 3 years, 36K.
So with a 2008, apparently the only Honda Care you can get is a 3 year add on.

If I say I have a 2009 then I can buy a 4 year add on, but that is a false difference since the car would have gone in service 1 year (or so) later. Looks like the bottom line is after the first 6 months (or 1 year?) and 6k miles the max you can buy is a total of 6 years - just one additional power train year and three additional "whatever else is covered by HC".
For my car, the price for such short duration additional may not be worth the high price...

Starting March 1st you will be able to get up to 5 additional years on a 2008, and 2009 Honda.

Thanks for the info, sounds like I need to go online tomorrow and get some new quotes.
#3511 of 3848 When should I purchase an extended warranty?
Mar 05, 2011 (8:14 pm)
I just bought a new 2011 Honda Accord EX-L V4, and now I am wondering whether I should buy an extended warranty. My salesperson told me that I can buy extended warranty any time as long as the car is still within factory warranty, which is 3yr/36000mile. Should I buy the extended warranty now or at the end of the factory warranty (3 years later)?
I read through this discussion, and it seems that Honda Care with 0 deductible is highly recommended compared to other 3-rd party warranty or 100-deductible honda care. Does everybody agrees with this? Thanks!

Be careful, while it may be true that you can purchase an extended warranty, from some 3rd party companies even long after your initial manufacturers warranty expires, to get an HC new car extended warranty you must purchase before the care is 6 months old and has less than 6,000 miles.
Most dealers will sell a 3rd party warranty, but that is not Honda Care.
