What Your 2010 Honda Pilot Warranty Covers

The 2010 Honda Pilot warranty covered several aspects of the vehicle, letting you get repairs and maintenance without having to pay for them out of pocket. Given how long it has been since the 2010 Pilot came out, however, the factory warranty has expired. It’s helpful to know what was covered to understand the different aspects of a 2010 Pilot you can get covered by a new extended warranty today.

Warranties are expressed in terms of time and mileage, with the warranty expiring based on which limit you reach first. A three-year or 36,000-mile warranty will expire after three years, regardless of mileage, or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

To make the warranty coverage easy to understand, we’ve constructed this easy table to use as a reference.

Factory Warranty

2010 Honda Pilot Basic Warranty

The basic warranty for the 2010 Pilot was three years or 36,000 miles, depending on which came first. This has now expired. The basic warranty is the coverage that protects against faults in just about every aspect of the vehicle. These faults must have been caused by factory or manufacturing errors. Additionally, some parts of the vehicle that are covered by this warranty may also be covered by their own unique warranties.

2010 Honda Pilot Powertrain Warranty

The powertrain warranty was good for five years or 60,000 miles, and it specifically covered the engine, drivetrain system, and transmission. This has now expired. Note that this applied whether you had front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Plus, this warranty depended on whether you maintained your vehicle with regular service, like oil changes, and operated it correctly.

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

The Pilot’s corrosion perforation warranty lasted for five years without a mileage limit. As of 2022, this has expired. Keep in mind that this only covered body panels that have rusted all the way through, not surface rust or paint bubbling. Also, the five-year counter didn’t reset if you took advantage of this warranty and replaced or repaired a body panel in the past. The new panel would only have been covered for the remainder of the original corrosion perforation warranty.

Air Conditioning Warranty

There was no specific warranty for the air conditioner in the 2010 Pilot. Instead, it was covered under the basic warranty. There were limits, however, as air conditioning refrigerant replacement was specifically not covered after the first year unless it was part of another warranty-covered repair.

Paint Warranty

There was no specific paint warranty. Paint defects as a result of poor materials or workmanship at the factory were covered by the basic warranty, but that’s all. Any paint damage that your Pilot suffered as part of a collision or other kind of accident was not covered by any warranty. This includes normal wear and tear as well.

Battery Warranty

The original battery that came with your Pilot was covered for three years with unlimited mileage. This has now expired. Honda would replace your original battery at no charge anytime within the first three years of ownership if it failed prematurely.

Tire Warranty

Honda provided no tire warranty for the 2010 Pilot. Instead, the warranty was issued specifically by the tire manufacturer. You’ll have to contact the manufacturer of your tires for warranty information, but your local Honda dealer can put you in touch with people who can answer your questions.

Emissions Warranty

Emissions systems were covered under federal law, and for your 2010 Honda Pilot you had coverage for up to three years or 36,000 miles after purchase, whichever came first. Those living in states following California’s stricter standards received expanded emissions coverage for up to three years or 50,000 miles, with some parts covered for seven years or 70,000 miles. States following California’s emission standards include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

The Clean Air Act requires Honda to specifically keep covering the engine computer, catalytic converter, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles.

2010 Honda Pilot Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase

When your 2010 Pilot was bought new, there was an option for an extended warranty through Honda. While the details varied based on the individual Honda dealer, it typically extended the basic warranty to eight years or 120,000 miles. Even with that, however, it’d be expired by now.

2010 Honda Pilot Extended Warranty Available Now

Getting coverage for a 2010 Pilot is still possible if you purchase new extended warranty options. They can offer some much-needed protection, though their details will vary based on the state of the vehicle and the mileage on it.

We’ve partnered with CARCHEX, the industry leader in extended warranties, to cover everything from the engine and other powertrain parts to the air conditioning and electrical systems, all for one low monthly fee.

FAQs

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the 2010 Honda Pilot warranty:

What’s the Warranty on the Seat Belts?

The seat belt warranty for the 2010 Pilot is quite comprehensive and is one of the few factory warranties that may still be active. Your seat belts are covered for 15 years or 150,000 miles. Just keep in mind that this coverage is for failure to function during normal use and not for any cosmetic or comfort issues.

Are There Benefits to Using Remanufactured Parts?

Remanufactured parts are covered by warranty for a lot longer than standard replacement parts. While replacement parts installed by a Honda dealer are covered for a year or 12,000 miles, remanufactured parts are covered for three years or 36,000 miles, as long as they’re purchased from and installed by a Honda dealer.

What Is Considered Proper Operation?

A lot of warranty requirements necessitate that the Pilot is properly operated, which simply means operating it within its normal limits while getting regular maintenance as needed such as oil changes. This kind of operation includes regular driving, following the speed limit, and using the right kind of gasoline.

All in all, the 2010 Honda Pilot had extensive warranty coverage, but the bulk of the coverage is long gone by 2022. Still, filling in the gaps in coverage left behind from expired warranties is possible by purchasing extended warranties that are available for older vehicles today.

If your factory warranty has expired and you’re looking to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, be sure to check out the FIXD+CARCHEX Vehicle Protection Plan. And remember, the best way to ensure warranty coverage (and prevent costly repairs in the first place) is to follow your manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule.
