TABLE OF CONTENTS

Learn About the 2010 Honda Civic’s Warranty Coverage and Exclusions

The 2010 Honda Civic came with a 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty, which means all of the car’s warranty coverages are now expired.

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.

2010 Honda Civic Factory Warranty Coverage:
  
New Vehicle Limited Warranty3 years or 36,000 miles
Powertrain Warranty5 years or 60,000 miles
Replacement Parts Limited Warranty1 year or 12,000 miles
Original Battery Limited Warranty3 years

2010 Honda Civic New Vehicle Limited Warranty

Honda covers your new vehicle for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first) as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, also referred to as a Basic or Bumper-To-Bumper warranty. This protection starts when you purchase or lease your 2010 Civic from an authorized dealership. 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

This Honda warranty is “limited.” That means it doesn’t protect every component of your vehicle. Check page 9 of your car’s warranty booklet for a list of all exclusions. Services like cleaning or adding fluid are not covered, nor are parts like filters and break pads. However, some Civic parts may be protected under other warranties that we’ll describe in detail.

2010 Honda Civic Extended Warranties Available Now

If you want the peace of mind that comes with an Extended Warranty, you must purchase one from an authorized Honda dealership before your New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires.

If you miss this deadline, you’ll have to buy a policy from a third-party provider. There are many options to choose from, and our resource helps guide you through the quote process.

2010 Honda Civic Powertrain Limited Warranty

The 2010 Honda Civic is protected by a five-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 on page 10 of your 2010 Honda Civic’s warranty booklet. However, the powertrain components that are covered by this warranty include, but are not limited to:

  • Engine: Cylinder block, timing gears, flywheel, valve covers, oil pump, intake manifold, water pump, engine mounts, fuel pump, seals, and gaskets
  • Transmission and transaxle: Transfer case, internal parts, control module, torque converter, gaskets, and seals
  • Rear-wheel-drive system: Internal parts, differential housing, propeller shafts, universal joints, driveshafts, rear bearings, gaskets, and seals
  • Front-wheel-drive system: Drive housing, internal parts, driveshafts, CV joints, and front hubs

Federal Emissions Warranties

The warranty on your emissions system starts the day you drive your 2010 Honda Civic off the dealership’s lot. Honda covers each part separately, so you’ll want to refer to the parts list at the back of the warranty booklet for more information.

States That Require Additional Emissions Measures:

If you live in one of the 10 states with stringent regulations regarding vehicle emissions, your 2010 Honda Civic’s parts are covered for 36 months or 50,000 miles, whichever occurs first. If your vehicle fails a smog inspection, Honda will make all necessary repairs and adjustments to your car to ensure it passes. These states include:

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

Your Responsibilities

To qualify for coverage by Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranties, you must operate and maintain your 2010 Honda Civic according to the manufacturer’s requirements on page 35 of the warranty booklet. You’ll also want to stick to the maintenance schedule to ensure your vehicle’s emissions control systems are 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. However, if the failure results from misuse, modification, or improper parts, that component may not be covered under this warranty.

Tire Warranty

The manufacturer of the original tires that came on your 2010 Honda Civic provides a warranty for them. If you have a problem with a defective tire, your Honda dealer will help you determine the cause and whether your warranty will help cover the tire repair or replacement costs.

For your information, Honda uses the following brands of tires to equip its popular sedan:

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

Seat Belt Limited Warranty

Honda believes that seat belts help keep its passengers safe, and to encourage you to use them, the company offers a warranty for this part. Your 2010 Civic comes with 180 months or 150,000 miles of coverage to ensure your seat belts are always in good operating condition.

The manufacturer will repair or replace any seat belt component that doesn’t function properly. It also pays for all parts and labor charges. However, the warranty won’t replace a functioning seat belt for cosmetic or comfort reasons or failure caused by misuse, alteration, or accidental damage. Routinely inspecting your seat belts will ensure you spot a problem before it affects its use.

Rust Perforation Limited Warranty

For the 2010 Civic, Honda provides a five-year Rust Perforation Limited Warranty. Vehicle owners have access to this protection plan right from the delivery date. There are also no mileage limits for this coverage. However, it can’t be transferred to a third party, like your auto insurance provider.

Warranty Coverage

Honda will repair or replace your Civic’s original body panels if they become perforated by rust from the inside out, including previously serviced panels. You won’t have to pay for parts, materials, or labor under this warranty. However, Honda will decide whether to repair or replace your corroded parts. Even if the rust doesn’t corrode through the metal, you may still be covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty if there is a defect in material or workmanship.

Warranty Exclusions

Honda doesn’t warranty surface rust on the underbody or body panels unless those parts were repaired under your Civic’s original three-year warranty. It also won’t cover body panel rust caused by misuse, abuse, or lack of maintenance or where rust was caused by immersion in water or road hazards like stones or other debris. In addition, the company isn’t required to paint match exactly nor is it likely to authorize an entirely new paint job for cosmetic damage.

Accessory Limited Warranty

Every 2010 Honda Civic offers 36 months or 36,000 miles of limited coverage on accessories installed before you purchase the vehicle. It protects you from defects in material and workmanship for those components. Repair or replacement of any approved accessory also includes parts and labor.

If the dealership installed the accessory after your original purchase date, coverage is different. You’ll have the remaining time frame on your New Vehicle Limited Warranty or one year/12,000 miles. Even if someone other than a Honda dealer does the installation, as long as it’s an approved Honda part, you’ll still get one year of protection on the accessory.

Replacement Parts Limited Warranty

Replacement parts installed by an authorized Honda dealership are warrantied by the company for one year or 12,000 miles, with no charge for parts or labor. Covered parts purchased from a Honda dealer but installed by another technician are protected for one year from the purchase date.

Remanufactured Parts

Remanufactured parts installed by a Honda dealer are covered for 36 months or 36,000 miles. This warranty also provides 36 months of coverage from the purchase date when someone else installs the components. Remember to keep copies of your receipts as proof. 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

Replacement Part Warranty Exclusions 

Honda doesn’t warranty parts that it considers normal maintenance items unless they are defective. This list of components includes spark plugs, air filters, and brake pads. The coverage also doesn’t extend to anything already protected by the original three-year warranty.

Original Equipment Battery Limited Warranty

Honda will replace your defective battery for the first 36 months of ownership at no cost to you. The company will cover the costs of diagnosing performance issues, labor, installation, and the retail price of a new battery. 

This coverage begins on the same day as your 2010 Honda Civic’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty. There are also no mileage limits with this warranty, so even if the odometer reading exceeds 36,000 miles, your battery may be covered.

Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty

Honda will replace certain exhaust components on your 2010 Civic. Defects in material and workmanship are authorized for repair or replacement as long as you own the vehicle. If a Honda dealer installed the component, this warranty also covers labor costs.

What This Warranty Doesn’t Cover

Honda won’t pay for labor to remove or replace any defective exhaust part that a Honda dealer did not initially install. It also excludes parts like gaskets, clamps, hangers, mounting hardware, and even the muffler if your New Vehicle Limited Warranty is still in effect.
