What Your 2007 Honda Ridgeline Warranty Covers
If you own a 2007 Honda Ridgeline, you may have questions regarding its Factory Warranty, which is also sometimes called a Manufacturer’s Warranty or a New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Although all Hondas come with warranty coverage when they’re new, the amount of coverage changes as the vehicle ages and puts on miles. That’s why we’ve put together this useful guide to help you understand your 2007 Honda Ridgeline warranty and all your coverage options.
|2007 Honda Ridgeline Factory Warranty Coverage:|
|Basic Warranty:||3 years or 36,000 miles|
|Powertrain Warranty:||5 years or 60,000 miles|
|Corrosion Perforation Warranty:||5 years with no mileage limit|
|Battery Warranty:||3 years with no mileage limit|
|Tire Warranty:||Warrantied by their manufacturer|
|Emissions Warranty:||3 years or 36,000 miles (50,000 miles in California)|
|Total Unique Recalls:||10|
If you have more questions, you can check out the FAQ section at the end of the article for additional guidance on your Ridgeline’s warranty coverage. Also, note that all warranty limitations are listed for both time and mileage, but the warranty ends when you reach either the mileage cap or the time frame. So if you hit the 36,000-mile mark before the three years are up, your coverage is still invalid at that point.
2007 Honda Ridgeline Basic Warranty
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty for your 2007 Honda Ridgeline started on the day you took possession of the vehicle. It lasted for three years or 36,000 miles. This warranty would have paid to replace parts that were defective due to poor workmanship. The coverage is expired. With this warranty, coverage didn’t include:
- Changing fluids
- Damaged window glass
Of course, adding or changing fluids or repairing damaged window glass would have been covered if it was part of other necessary warranty work or due to defective parts or materials.
2007 Honda Ridgeline Powertrain Warranty
Your Powertrain Limited Warranty started on the same day as your New Vehicle Limited Warranty. This coverage was good for five years or 60,000 miles. Some parts may have been covered under other warranties, but this warranty is now expired. When it was valid, it covered the engine, transmission, transaxle, and drive systems. This included various internal components, as well as seals and gaskets.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
A 2007 Honda Ridgeline’s original owner could use the Rust Perforation Limited Warranty for five years. The coverage had no mileage limit, but it’s now expired. It would have paid to replace panels that rusted through completely. It would only cover the replaced panels for the life of the original warranty period. Rust on panels caused by poor-quality materials was covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The coverage for rusted panels excluded:
- Rust on underbody panels or anywhere other than the panels
- Rust from misuse, abuse, or failure to maintain panels properly
- Rust from immersion in sand, mud, or water
- Rust from road hazards or debris
- Rust from corrosive gas or industrial fallout
Air Conditioning Warranty
Honda didn’t provide a separate Air Conditioning Warranty for the 2007 Ridgeline. The New Vehicle Limited Warranty covered the system’s components, so it was covered for three years or 36,000 miles. However, the coolant could only be recharged for one year unless part of other warranty work. This coverage is expired.
Unless due to a defect in workmanship, your 2007 Honda Ridgeline’s paint job isn’t covered under warranty. If you noticed a defect in the paint or body of the vehicle when you took possession of it, you would have needed to bring it to the attention of the dealer right away.
The Original Equipment Battery Limited Warranty for your 2007 Honda Ridgeline covered the battery for three years with no mileage limit. If the battery failed during this time, Honda would have replaced it free of charge. This warranty is now expired.
Your Ridgeline’s original tires had a warranty provided by the manufacturer. Honda doesn’t have a tire warranty, but your dealer can help you find the information on your tire warranty if you need to find out whether it’s still valid.
Under the Federal Emissions Warranty, your Honda Ridgeline’s emissions system was covered for three years or 36,000 miles. The coverage lasted for up to 50,000 miles in California and select states under the California Emissions Warranty. Due to the Clean Air Act, some parts may have been covered for eight years or 80,000 miles. The emissions system is no longer under warranty. When in effect, the Federal Emissions Warranty covered:
- Crankcase control system
- Evaporative and refueling emissions control systems
- Exhaust gas recirculation system
- Exhaust system
- Ignition system
- Fuel injection system
- OBD system
- Transmission control system
- Intake air system
- Secondary air injection system
- VTEC system
- VTC system
To ensure coverage, you needed to maintain the components according to the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule.
2007 Honda Ridgeline Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
When you bought your Honda Ridgeline, you had until the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired to purchase a Honda Care plan. This warranty extension would have given you coverage for eight years or 120,000 miles. You can no longer purchase this coverage for your 2007 Ridgeline. If you did purchase a Honda Care plan for your Ridgeline, the coverage is now expired. It added additional options not available with the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, such as trip interruption protection and roadside assistance.

Consider these answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the 2007 Honda Ridgeline warranty:
Do the Seat Belts in the 2007 Honda Ridgeline Have a Warranty?
A Seat Belt Limited Warranty started on the same day as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for your 2007 Honda Ridgeline. This warranty will pay to replace the seat belts in the vehicle if they fail due to materials that are defective. It’s good for 15 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. The warranty doesn’t cover seat belts for cosmetic or comfort reasons. Depending on your vehicle’s mileage, you may still have seat belt coverage.
Can the 2007 Honda Ridgeline Warranty Transfer to a Second Owner?
Most of the 2007 Honda Ridgeline’s warranty coverage would have passed to a second owner. Some parts of the warranty were only good for the original owner, such as the Rust Perforation Limited Warranty. Because most of the vehicle’s coverage is now expired, no one can make claims using the warranty.
What Can Void a 2007 Honda Ridgeline Warranty?
A failure to properly maintain your vehicle would have voided your warranty coverage. If you misused or drove your vehicle in a way that Honda didn’t intend for it to be driven, you would have voided the warranty. Keeping up on all maintenance is the best way to ensure you can use your warranty.
Are Accessories Covered Under the 2007 Honda Ridgeline Warranty?
Any accessories on your 2007 Honda Ridgeline that were installed before the retail sale were covered under the Accessories Limited Warranty, which lasted until the end of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. If the accessories were installed by a Honda dealer after retail sale, they would have come with a one-year, 12,000-mile warranty or until the end of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, whichever was longer.
Will a Replacement Battery Be Covered Under Warranty for the 2007 Honda Ridgeline?
A Replacement Battery Limited Warranty covered a replacement battery for 100 months, or eight years and four months. The replacement battery could have been replaced at no cost for three years, and the remaining 64 months covered a percentage of the battery cost, but not labor and installation fees. This coverage is expired.
