New Car Warranty

Get up to 5 years Warranty on your New Honda

Honda’s engines are the most reliable in the world*, we pride ourselves on our vehicle quality and we want to celebrate that.

That’s why we are confident to provide all new Hondas with an extensive bumper to bumper 3 year Manufacturer warranty + 2 year Distributor Warranty with unlimited kilometres and 24/7 Honda roadside assistance. 

*Research by Whatcar? and Warranty Direct.  

All New Honda vehicles come with a 3 Year Manufacturer Warranty

This starts from the date of first registration and gives you a 3 year unlimited-kilometer warranty covering faulty parts, materials, and workmanship.

Eligibility for the 2 year Distributor Warranty

The 2 year Distributor Warranty only applies if the vehicle is serviced at an Authorised Honda outlet from the first registered date, for the whole of the Manufacturer and Distributor Warranty Period. It must be serviced according to the Servicing Schedule in the owner’s Warranty Booklet. You can find out more in our Warranty Booklet.

An Authorised Honda Outlet is a Honda Store, Honda Service Store or Honda Service Centre.

Transfer your warranty if you sell

If you sell your new Honda before the 3 year Manufacturer Warranty has expired, you can transfer it to the new owner, as long as the vehicle has been serviced according to the Servicing Schedule*. The same goes for the Distributor Warranty, as long as the vehicle is serviced at an Authorised Honda outlet for the whole of the Manufacturer and Distributor Warranty Period.

What’s the difference? Many other automotive warranties that offer 3 or 5 years are not transferable and limit the kilometres, ending the warranty period much earlier.

ABOUT YOUR WARRANTY

Honda New Vehicle Warranty*

The New Vehicle Warranty is designed to replace defective parts or materials and fix faulty workmanship. Whether something is repaired or replaced is decided by Honda NZ Ltd. Defects are repaired for free, including parts and labour, but normal wear and tear is not.

Any part of the vehicle repaired or replaced free under the warranty stays under warranty for the balance of the warranty period. Even if you sell the vehicle to someone else, the balance of the warranty applies.*

*The Distributor Warranty only applies if the vehicle is serviced by an Authorised Honda outlet from the first registered date, for the whole of the warranty period. The Servicing Schedule is at the back of the Warranty booklet.

The Warranty Booklet explains in detail what is, and is not, covered under the New Vehicle Warranty. It’s important to read and understand this when you buy your new Honda.

-- Battery Warranty Coverage

  • 12V Car Battery: is only covered for three years from the first registered date. There is no Distributor Warranty extension.
  • e:HEV Hybrid Battery: is covered for the full five years or 100,000 kilometres (whichever comes first) from the first registered date.

Operation of Warranty

Here’s what to do if your Honda has a problem or needs repairs while it’s under warranty:

  • Contact the nearest Authorised Honda outlet as soon as you notice a defect and explain the issue as accurately as possible.
  • Make a booking and, if it’s safe, drive your vehicle in. Otherwise, you’ll need to have it delivered to the authorised Honda outlet.

Your Responsibilities

To retain the full Manufacturer and Distributor Warranty, you must:

  • Have your vehicle serviced with an Authorised Honda outlet according to the Servicing Schedule at the back of the Warranty Booklet.
  • Use only genuine Honda parts, oil & fluids.
  • Carefully monitor and respond to your vehicle’s warning systems.

Please refer to the Warranty Booklet for detailed terms and conditions.
