2010 Honda Fit Basic Warranty

The 2010 Honda Fit’s three-year, 36,000-mile Basic Warranty began on the original delivery or lease date. This warranty covered free repairs or replacements of defective components. It didn’t cover parts that needed replacing due to wear or tear, neglect, or collisions. This warranty has expired.

2010 Honda Fit Powertrain Warranty

Chassis of the electric, hybrid car with powertrain. Blue toned.

The 2010 Honda Fit had a five-year, 60,000-mile Powertrain Warranty, which has now expired. It covered repairs and replacement of a defective engine, transmission, transaxle, and front- and rear-wheel-drive systems. Some parts of the powertrain had longer coverage under other warranty sections.

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

The Rust Perforation Limited Warranty for the 2010 Honda Fit was a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty. While it has expired, it entitled the original owner to repairs or replacement of any rusted-through panels. It didn’t cover surface rust or rust caused by neglect, collisions, or weather.

Air Conditioning Warranty

While the 2010 Honda Fit didn’t have a separate air conditioner warranty, the Basic Warranty covered the system for three years or 36,000 miles. It also covered refrigerant for the first year of ownership. This warranty has expired. 

Paint Warranty

Car detailing - the man holds the microfiber in hand and polishes the car. Selective focus.

The 2010 Honda Fit didn’t have a separate paint warranty. The Basic Warranty covered factory paint defects and flaws and paint damage caused during shipping. The Rust Perforation Warranty covered the paint needed to fix rust claims. These warranties have now expired.

Battery Warranty

The 2010 Honda Fit had a three-year, unlimited mileage Original Equipment Battery Limited Warranty. It covered the cost of a replacement battery along with diagnosis, installation, and other labor services. This warranty has now expired.

Tire Warranty

The companies that made the 2010 Honda Fit’s tires covered them with their own warranties. Check the glove box for details of your tire warranty. During the warranty period, Honda dealers helped their customers diagnose tire defects and connect with the manufacturer.

Emissions Warranty

A three-year, 36,000-mile Federal Emissions Warranty (50,000 miles in some states, like California) covered most of the 2010 Honda Fit’s emission system. Fuel injection and exhaust systems had an eight-year, 80,000-mile warranty under the Clean Air Act. Other parts had more coverage in some states.

2010 Honda Fit Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase

In 2010 Honda dealers offered third-party extended warranties and Honda Care, Honda’s extended warranty coverage, with new car purchases. Prices varied according to the plan’s time period and mileage coverage. 

Along with repairs and replacements, some offered extra services such as roadside assistance.
