We’ve also included a Q&A section at the bottom of this guide. With it, you’ll learn the answers to some common questions Honda owners ask our automotive experts. But first, let’s review what your 2010 Honda CR-Z warranty covered, what it didn’t, and what’s still protected today.
2010 Honda CR-Z Basic Warranty
With the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, Honda would have repaired or replaced any defective part on your 2010 CR-Z for three years or 36,000 miles for free. Unfortunately, this warranty is expired.
This Factory Warranty didn’t cover every component of your CR-Z. A separate warranty might have covered some parts and systems. The New Vehicle Limited Warranty’s exclusions included:
- Normal wear and tear
- Cleaning the interior
- Polishing exterior surfaces
- Adding fluids (unless part of a covered repair)
- Broken window glass
- Cosmetic flaws
- Damage to the body or paint
- Routine maintenance items
2010 Honda CR-Z Powertrain Warranty
Your 2010 CR-Z’s powertrain was covered for five years or 60,000 miles. Honda would have repaired or replaced the engine, transmission, transaxle, and drive system if the components failed because of a manufacturing defect. This warranty is also expired.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
Honda offers a five-year Rust Perforation Limited Warranty. This protection comes without mileage limits. However, this coverage has also expired for your 2010 CR-Z.
With this corrosion protection policy, Honda would have replaced or repaired any body panels that were perforated by rust from the inside out. This nontransferable coverage also extended to previously serviced panels as long as they were fixed during the original five-year policy.
Air Conditioning Warranty
Your 2010 Honda CR-Z’s air conditioning system was warrantied for three years or 36,000 miles. The refrigerant was also covered for two years or 24,000 miles, unless filling it was necessary as part of another warrantied repair. This coverage is now expired.
Honda doesn’t offer a paint warranty on any of its vehicles, including the 2010 Honda CR-Z. Repairing cosmetic flaws or damage to the body and paint is your financial responsibility.
Honda offered a three-year Original Equipment Battery Limited Warranty on your 2010 CR-Z’s battery. This coverage had no mileage limits, and it paid for all parts, labor, and installation. This policy is also expired.
The original tires on your 2010 Honda were warrantied by their manufacturer. However, if you need a tire repair or replacement and believe yours are still covered, contact your local dealership for help filing a claim.
In 2010, Honda used the following tire manufacturers to equip the CR-Z:
Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranty protected your 2010 CR-Z’s emissions system for a minimum of three years or 36,000 miles. However, some components might have had more extensive coverage. This warranty is expired. However, you can still get help passing your state’s emissions inspection.
If your CR-Z failed a federally approved smog test, the Clean Air Act might have helped cover the repairs of your car’s engine computer, catalytic converter, and onboard diagnostics for up to eight years or 80,000 miles. Additionally, the factory warranty might be extended in states that have adopted stringent anti-smog regulations. For example, the California Emissions Warranty states that all emissions-related parts are covered for three years or 50,000, while some high-cost components received seven years or 70,000 miles of protection. While this coverage is also expired, California Emissions Warranty states include:
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- Rhode Island

Honda discontinued the CR-Z in 2016 to make room for other eco-friendly vehicles that better fit the market niche, including the Clarity and Accord Hybrid.
