2010 Honda Accord Basic Warranty
The 2010 Honda Accord Basic Warranty covered the new vehicle for three years or 36,000 miles (whichever came first). The coverage period started when the owner took possession of the car and included the repair or replacement of defective parts. It has expired.
The Basic Warranty, also referred to as the New Car Warranty, has limitations and exclusions. You can review what’s excluded in the owner’s manual, linked below. Some of the most common exclusions are normal maintenance, air conditioning refrigerant, parts designed to wear out, and tires.
2010 Honda Accord Powertrain Warranty
The 2010 Honda Accord had a five-year or 60,000-mile warranty on the powertrain, which included vital components such as the engine, axles, and transmission. This warranty has expired.
This warranty did not cover all powertrain components. For example, the spark plugs require replacement regularly, so they fall under the maintenance exclusion.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
A 2010 Honda Accord included a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty that lasted five years with no mileage limit. This warranty is now expired.
The Rust Perforation Warranty covered any body panel that rusted from the inside out as the result of corrosion. However, rusted sections of the underbody or other vehicle components did not qualify for coverage. Rust caused by manufacturer or workmanship defects fell under this warranty, even if the corrosion did not go all the way through the body panel.
Air Conditioning Warranty
The air conditioning system in a 2010 Honda Accord did not include a separate warranty, but it was covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty that lasted three years or 36,000 miles. The refrigerant in the system qualified for coverage for the first year.
If an Accord required new or replacement refrigerant after the first year, it was excluded unless part of a repair that qualified for warranty coverage.
The exterior paint didn’t have its own warranty but fell under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for three years/36,000 miles.
Paint damage qualified for coverage during this period if its cause was a workmanship or material defect. Accidents or misuse of the vehicle causing paint issues weren’t covered, even during the three-year period or before the car reached 36,000 miles.
Honda offered a three-year warranty on the battery in the 2010 Accord. This coverage has expired.
If the battery experienced any manufacturer defects, Honda replaced or repaired it for free. All costs related to diagnosis, installation, and labor were included.
The manufacturer of the tires on a 2010 Honda Accord provides warranty coverage separately from Honda’s warranties. The original, factory-installed tires might have come from one of these brands:
The 2010 Honda Accord included emissions-related defects and performance warranties that covered all components in the emissions system for three years or 36,000 miles in most states. California has more stringent emissions regulations, so cars sold and purchased there qualify for extended coverage that lasts seven years or 70,000 miles.
Other states have adopted similar regulations, so the longer warranty also applied to Accord models in:
- New Jersey
- Rhode Island
In accordance with the Clean Air Act, Honda offered coverage for the engine computer, catalytic converter, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles.
2010 Honda Accord Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
