Find Out What a 2009 Honda Civic Warranty Covers and What It Doesn’t

Your 2009 Honda Civic came with a three-year or 36,000-mile warranty, which means that all warranty coverage is now expired. It is possible that an extended warranty is still in effect, or you can purchase a new extended warranty or service contract. Check your 2009 Honda Civic Warranty Handbook for exact warranty information.

Recalls are different from warranties, and they must be performed by a dealership even if the vehicle is out of warranty. Visit NHTSA.gov/recalls to search for recall information on any car using the 17-digit VIN or year/make/model data.

2009 Honda Civic New Vehicle Limited Warranty

Honda covers your new vehicle for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. This protection starts when you purchase or lease your 2009 Civic from a Honda dealership. After that, you’re entitled to repair or replace any covered part that’s defective under normal use, completely free of charge.

New Vehicle Limited Warranty Exclusions

Honda’s warranty is limited, meaning it doesn’t protect everything. See page 13 of your car’s warranty booklet for every exclusion, including maintenance and wear items such as batteries and tires. Also, cleaning and adding fluids, including air conditioning refrigerant, are not covered.

2009 Honda Civic Powertrain Limited Warranty

The 2009 Honda Civic is protected by a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Some of these vital components may also have additional coverage under other warranties.

Parts Covered by the Powertrain Warranty

Your vehicle may not be equipped with all the parts listed. However, the following is covered by the powertrain warranty:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Axles

2009 Honda Civic Extended Warranties Available Now

You must purchase a Honda extended warranty from an authorized dealership before your new vehicle limited warranty runs out. If you miss this deadline, you’ll have to buy coverage from a third-party provider. There are many options online to choose from, and we have a terrific resource to guide you through the quote process.

Federal Emissions Warranties

Honda provides a Federal Emissions warranty that protects your 2009 Civic for three years or 36,000 miles with basic coverage and three years or 50,000 miles in some states, like California. Systems that are under warranty include:

  • Crankcase Control
  • Refueling Emissions
  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation
  • Exhaust
  • Ignition
  • Fuel Injection
  • On-Board Diagnostics
  • Transmission Control
  • Intake Air
  • Valve Control
  • Integrated Motor Assist (hybrid powertrain only)

States that Require Additional Emissions Measures:

If you live in one of the ten states with stringent anti-smog regulations, your 2009 Honda Civic’s parts are covered for three years or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. These states include:

  • California
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • Washington

Your Responsibilities

To qualify for coverage by the Federal Emissions warranty, operate and maintain your 2009 Honda Civic according to the manufacturer’s requirements in the warranty booklet. You’ll also want to stick to the maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual to keep your vehicle’s emissions control systems functioning correctly. Don’t worry, though. Honda won’t deny your emissions claim if you don’t have copies of all of your maintenance records.

Original Equipment Battery Limited Warranty

Honda will replace your defective battery during the first three years at no cost to you, including diagnosing performance issues, labor, installation, and a replacement battery. This warranty’s coverage begins on the same date as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and there are no mileage limits with this coverage.

Tire Warranty

The original tires that came on your 2009 Honda Civic are warranted by their manufacturer. If you have a problem with a defective tire, your Honda dealer will help you determine the cause and if your warranty will help cover the tire repair or replacement costs. Honda uses the following brands of tires to equip this sedan:

  • Yokohama Tires (Fullerton, CA)
  • Michelin Tires (Greenville, SC)
  • Goodyear/Dunlop Tires (Akron, OH)
  • Bridgestone/Firestone Tires (Chicago, IL)

Rust Perforation Limited Warranty

Honda provides a 5-year rust perforation limited warranty to vehicle owners. This protection plan also starts on your delivery date. However, there are no mileage limits, and coverage can’t be transferred to a third party, like your auto insurance provider.

Warranty Coverage

Honda will repair or replace body panels that become perforated by rust from the inside out, including previously serviced panels. Honda will solely make the decision to repair or replace any corroded parts. Rust caused by a defect in material or workmanship that does not corrode through is still covered, although by the new vehicle’s limited warranty. You won’t have to pay for parts, materials, or labor under this warranty.

Warranty Exclusions

Honda doesn’t warranty surface rust on the underbody or body panels unless those parts were repaired under your Civic’s original warranty. It also won’t cover body panel rust caused by misuse, abuse, or lack of maintenance or where rust was caused by road hazards, stones, debris, or immersion in water. The company does its best to match exterior colors as well, but don’t expect it to authorize an entirely new paint job for cosmetic damage.

Accessory Limited Warranty

Every 2009 Honda Civic offers three years or 36,000 miles of limited coverage on accessories. This warranty begins on your original date of purchase. It protects you from defects in material and workmanship for components like the audio system, but it does not cover accessories installed by anyone other than a Honda dealer.

If an authorized shop installed your accessories after you purchased the car, the coverage is different. It continues until your new vehicle warranty expires or one year or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. In both cases, Honda will repair or replace any approved accessory, including parts and labor.

Replacement Parts Limited Warranty

Honda-installed replacement parts are covered for one year or 12,000 miles. Warrantied parts purchased from a Honda dealer but installed by another technician are covered for one year from the purchase date.

Remanufactured Parts

Remanufactured parts installed by a Honda dealer are covered for parts and labor for three years or 36,000 miles. This warranty also provides three years of coverage from the date of purchase when someone else installs the components. Ask your service technician if they used remanufactured parts to repair your vehicle, including standard options, like:

  • Alternators
  • Starters
  • Brake calipers
  • Power steering racks and pumps
  • Automatic brake system modulators
  • Automatic transmissions
  • Driveshafts

Seat Belt Limited Warranty

Honda warranties your 2009 Civic’s seat belts. Coverage begins on the date you take delivery from the dealership, and it continues for 15 years or 150,000 miles. The manufacturer will repair or replace any component that fails to function correctly during everyday use, including all parts and labor charges. This warranty won’t cover the costs of replacing a functioning seat belt for cosmetic or comfort reasons, though, or failure caused by abuse, alteration, accidental damage, or misuse.

Replacement Battery Limited Warranty

If you purchased your battery in the U.S., it might be covered. Honda offers a 100-month warranty on replacement batteries. During the first three years, the car company will replace your defective battery at no cost, even labor or installation fees. Make sure to have the battery properly tested before you go through the trouble of taking it to the shop.

However, for the remaining term of your warranty, you’ll get a credit toward the purchase price of a new battery. However, you’re responsible for the installation and labor costs. This credit is based on the part’s current retail price, as follows:

Number of Months
Available Credit
Months 0 to 36100%
Months 37 to 4560%
Months 46 to 5550%
Months 56 to 6540%
Months 66 to 7530%
Months 76 to 8520%
Months 86 to 9510%
Months 96 to 100
5%

Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty

Honda will replace your 2009 Civic’s exhaust components when you or your technician discover defects in material and workmanship. If a Honda dealer originally installed the exhaust component, this warranty covers the labor cost for removal and replacement. Parts that are protected include:

  • Muffler
  • A-pipe
  • B-pipe
  • Gaskets
  • Hangers
  • Clamps
  • Mounting hardware
