If you’re buying a new Honda, used Honda, or a Certified Pre-Owned Honda model, then you probably already know about the Honda warranty benefits, but what about extended warranties? More specifically, are extended warranties worth it? The team at Planet Honda thinks that an extended new vehicle warranty or extended Honda certified warranty is a smart choice, but it depends on your personal driving habits and financial situation. Find out about the new vehicle extended warranty options and extended certified pre-owned warranty coverage to see if either will fit with your budget.

What is an Extended Warranty?

Basically, an extended warranty is coverage available in addition to the warranty that is included with your new or certified pre-owned vehicle.

  • Some extended warranties exist to offer additional protection beyond the coverage of the standard vehicle warranty.
  • Other extended warranties are designed to take over when your manufacturer warranty expires.

Honda Care® provides a variety of coverage and services to ensure that your vehicle gets the care it needs to always run safely and smoothly on the roads in and around Lakewood. Take a look at the four levels of coverage offered to see which is the best choice for you.
