Factory Warranty

2004 Honda Accord Basic Warranty

The 2004 Honda Accord had a three-year, 36,000-mile manufacturer’s warranty beginning on the original delivery or lease date. This has now expired. It covered free repairs or replacements of parts with defective manufacture or workmanship under normal use. It didn’t include parts with their own warranties or wear and tear items such as fluids or brake pads.

2004 Honda Accord Powertrain Warranty

The 2004 Honda Accord did not have a separate powertrain warranty. Instead, the basic warranty covered powertrain components. This has now expired.

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

The original owner had a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty, good for five years and unlimited miles. This has now expired. This warranty only covered original body panels that have rusted all the way through. It did not cover surface rust, paint damage due to rust underneath, or rust due to impacts with objects or submersion. It was also only available to the original owner of the car. Subsequent owners had no corrosion warranty at all.

Air Conditioning Warranty

There is no separate air conditioning warranty, but Honda’s basic warranty covered air conditioner refrigerant charges for the first year and longer when needed for related warranty repairs. This has now expired. The warranty made no other direct mentions of the air conditioner but did note Honda dealers may replace other parts at their discretion.

Battery Warranty

Honda had a three-year battery warranty. For the first two years, replacement batteries were free. During the third year, Honda provided a 50% credit toward the purchase of a replacement battery from a Honda dealer. This has now expired.

Emissions Warranty

Honda offered a three-year or 36,000-mile emissions warranty. In addition, the Clean Air Act requires manufacturers to cover the catalytic converter, engine computer, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles. California required full emissions coverage for three years or 50,000 miles. All of these have now expired.

2004 Honda Accord Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase

Honda dealers offered new Honda Care plans for new 2004 Honda Accords any time before the end of the factory warranty. Under this extended warranty, Honda would repair or replace common parts such as the engine, transmission, axles, and air conditioning for free for up to eight years or 120,000 miles. This has now expired.

2004 Honda Accord Extended Warranties Available Now

FAQs

Are There Any Warranty Differences Between the 2004 Honda Accord Models?

There are no differences between the warranties issued for any 2004 Honda Accord models. The 2004 Honda Accord coupe and sedan both have the same warranties and inclusions.

Has the 2004 Honda Accord Warranty Run Out?

All of the 2004 Honda Accord warranties have expired. However, the seat belt warranty is valid for the vehicle’s useful life.

Is the 2004 Honda Accord’s Audio System Covered by a Warranty?

The 2004 Honda Accord’s audio system had coverage under the basic warranty. If the original system had issues during the three-year/36,000-mile warranty period, your local dealer could replace it.

Does a Honda Dealer Need To Service Your Accord To Maintain Your Warranty?

Having a dealer service your 2004 Honda Accord makes record keeping easy, but it’s not a condition of your warranty. You can visit any trusted mechanic or personally service your vehicle. Keeping receipts and a logbook of work you do on your vehicle can provide evidence if you need to make a claim.

If your factory warranty has expired and you’re looking to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, be sure to check out the CARCHEX+FIXD Vehicle Protection Plan. And remember, the best way to ensure warranty coverage (and prevent costly repairs in the first place) is to follow your manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule.
