Honda Parts Warranty

Honda Warranty Policy & Procedures

Re-manufactured Parts (rev. 7/12)

Honda Genuine Re-manufactured Parts sold for non-warranty replacements are covered by a 3-year or 36,000-mile replacement parts limited warranty when purchased from and installed by an authorized Honda automobile dealer. Honda Genuine Re-manufactured Parts distributed by American Honda and purchased from, but not installed by, an authorized Honda automobile dealer are covered for 3 years from the date of purchase.

Any component replaced during the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, emissions warranties, Powertrain Limited Warranty, or Rust Perforation Limited Warranty are covered for the remainder of that warranty term regardless of the component installed. The Replacement Parts Limited Warranty does not apply in those cases where Honda paid for the repair, not the customer. Goodwill repairs do not have additional warranties.

  • A Honda Genuine Re-manufactured Part, if offered by Honda, must be used for all replacement part warranty repairs.
  • Honda Genuine Re-manufactured Parts must be used for New Vehicle Limited Warranty repairs if re-manufactured parts are available from American Honda.
  • Honda Genuine Re-manufactured Parts must not be used to repair new, unsold vehicles in dealer inventory.
  • Authorization by your DPSM is required when installing a new, non-re-manufactured component in place of a re-manufactured part.

Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty Coverage

Honda Genuine replacement exhaust components (A-pipe, B-pipe, and muffler) are warranted against defects in material and workmanship. This lifetime, limited warranty is granted to the original purchaser of the replacement part for as long as the purchaser owns or leases the vehicle in which it is installed. This warranty is not transferable.


Replacement components covered by this warranty that are defective in material or workmanship under normal use will be replaced by Honda. If a Honda dealer originally installed the replacement components, a Honda dealer will do the replacement. Honda covers the cost of the replacement component and the cost of labor to remove and install it. If someone other than a Honda dealer installed the warranted component, the cost to replace the part is covered by Honda, but the removal and installation labor cost is not covered.

Parts replaced under this warranty become the property of Honda.
