All About Your 2009 Honda Ridgeline Warranty
Every new Honda vehicle, including the 2009 Ridgeline, comes with factory warranty coverage, also known as manufacturer’s warranty coverage. Automotive warranties can be confusing, so we’ve created this guide to help determine if you still have coverage for your Ridgeline and whether you have a factory or dealership warranty. We’ll also help you determine if your warranty covers paint, tires, and batteries.
Please note that warranty duration appears in time or mileage, whichever comes first. For example, a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty expires in three years or when you reach 36,000 miles in less than three years.
