Everything About the 2009 Honda Fit Warranty
The 2009 Honda Fit came with a Factory Warranty, also known as a Manufacturer’s Warranty, when it was brand new. The Basic Warranty lasted for three years or 36,000 miles. Other major included warranties, like the Powertrain Warranty, have also expired.
However, because your 2009 Honda Fit is now more than 10 years old, you might want to know what coverage is left, if any.
These manufacturer-provided warranties can be challenging to navigate, but it’s important to understand your coverage, especially if expensive repairs arise. To help you learn about the details of your 2009 Honda Fit warranty, we’ve put together this useful guide.
Keep in mind that all warranties are limited by either time or miles, depending on which one comes first. This means if your Honda Fit reached the 36,000-mile cap before it hit the three-year mark, the warranty period is over. You can continue to the frequently asked questions section that provides further details about your Fit’s warranty.

2009 Honda Fit Basic Warranty
When you first took ownership of your 2009 Honda Fit, it had a three-year, 36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The coverage encompassed repair and replacement of major parts of your vehicle. This coverage has expired.
Some parts might have been covered under other warranties. This coverage excluded:
- Adding fluids that weren’t part of completing other warranty work
- Replacing parts that degrade under normal use, such as spark plugs and filters
- Repairing window glass that’s damaged unless from a defect in materials

Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The 2009 Honda Fit came with a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty that was good for five years, with no mileage limit. This warranty paid to replace any panels on the vehicle that rusted completely through. It started on the same day as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and is now expired.
Panels replaced under this warranty had coverage until the original Rust Perforation Limited Warranty expired. It didn’t cover rusted underbody panels or rust on any other part of the vehicle than on the panels. This warranty also didn’t pay to repair or replace panels that rusted because of
- Road debris or hazards
- Corrosive gas or industrial fallout
- Immersion in water, mud, or sand
- Abuse or misuse
Air Conditioning Warranty
Honda covered the 2009 Honda Fit air conditioning system under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. You could also have the coolant recharged for one year unless it was necessary for other warranty work.
The appearance of your 2009 Honda Fit doesn’t fit into any vehicle warranties. This includes the paint job. You must have brought any paint damage issues to the attention of the dealer as soon as you bought the vehicle.
Your Original Equipment Battery Limited Warranty went into effect on the same day as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. This coverage was good for three years and had no mileage limit. It would pay to replace your battery and included labor and installation fees. The warranty is expired.
The tires that came equipped on your 2009 Honda Fit had a warranty from the manufacturer, not Honda. You could have found the warranty statement in your glove box. If you need help with your Tire Warranty, you can contact your Honda dealer or the tire manufacturer.
For 2009 year models, Honda used the following tire manufacturers:
A Federal Emissions Warranty for your 2009 Honda Fit went into effect on the same day as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and was good for three years or 36,000 miles, except in California and select states, where coverage lasted 50,000 miles. This coverage is now expired.
The California Emissions Warranty also covered some emissions system parts for seven years or 70,000 miles. Additionally, the Clean Air Act required Honda to cover select parts of the emissions system for eight years or 80,000 miles. All emissions coverage is no longer valid.

2009 Honda Fit Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase

With this plan, you would have coverage for the air conditioner and other parts, as well as roadside assistance, rental car reimbursement, and trip interruption coverage.

These are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the 2009 Honda Fit warranty:
A replacement battery for your 2009 Honda Fit comes with a 100-month warranty. This coverage pays to replace the battery, including installation and labor, for the first three years. After the three-year period is up, the warranty covers the cost of a new battery at a percentage of its cost.
For the original owner, the exhaust components that came on the 2009 Honda Fit are covered under the Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty. This covers the muffler, A-pipe, and B-pipe. The warranty doesn’t pay for other parts and labor associated with replacing exhaust components.
Any accessories installed after the retail sale of the 2009 Honda Fit were under warranty for the remainder of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty or for one year or 12,000 miles. To take advantage of this warranty, you had to provide proof of purchase for the accessory in question.
When in effect, you could have transferred most of the 2009 Honda Fit warranties to a new owner. Because this coverage has expired, no warranty will transfer to a new owner if you sell the vehicle.
