What’s Included in Your 2011 Honda CR-Z Warranty?
While trying to understand what Honda covers under your 2011 Honda CR-Z warranty is often confusing, we’re here to help you navigate through your coverage. We’ll help you figure out if your powertrain, seat belt, and tires are under warranty for your 2011 CR-Z. You may have heard of Factory Warranties and Manufacturer’s Warranties and wondered what the difference is. Actually, both of these warranties are the same, and they’re often referred to as a New Vehicle Limited Warranty or Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty as well.
You might also wonder how long these warranties are good for and whether all of your 2011 Honda CR-Z warranties have expired. We are here to help answer these questions and more. Keep in mind that each warranty is discussed in terms of two factors: time and mileage. If you have a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty, your coverage will expire based on whichever limit you reach first. If you have any additional questions about your 2011 Honda CR-Z coverage, check out the FAQ section at the bottom of the article.

The 2011 Honda CR-Z did not have an air conditioning warranty. However, the CR-Z did have coverage for the air conditioning system under the original Manufacturer’s Warranty of three years or 36,000 miles, which is now expired. The refrigerant was only covered for the first year.

2011 Honda CR-Z Tire Warranty
The 2011 Honda CR-Z did not have a specific tire warranty. The tire manufacturer of your 2011 CR-V tires would have provided a warranty for the tires. Each manufacturer has specific time frames and mileage limits, and you would need to contact them directly for tire warranty details.

Here are some additional questions Honda owners often have about their 2011 Honda CR-Z warranty:
You did, but that warranty has expired. Under the Replacement Battery Limited Warranty, Honda would have replaced the original equipment battery for free for three years or 36,000 miles. After that time, Honda would have given you credit toward a replacement battery based on a monthly usage scale for up to 100 months:
- Months 37 to 45: 60%
- Months 46 to 55: 50%
- Months 56 to 65: 40%
- Months 66 to 75: 30%
- Months 76 to 85: 20%
- Months 86 to 95: 10%
- Months 96 to 100: 5%
The 100-month Replacement Battery Limited Warranty is expired for your 2011 CR-Z.
Yes, it does. Your 2011 CR-Z came with a 15-year or 150,000-mile Seat Belt Limited Warranty that is still valid for your CR-Z. This warranty covers repairs or replacement parts to the CR-Z’s seat belt components if they fail to function under normal use. Honda will not cover the costs of repairs or replacement parts for cosmetic or comfort reasons or if the seat belt was abused or altered. In addition, the Seat Belt Limited Warranty does not provide coverage for damaged seat belt components due to a collision.
The best way to find warranty details is to refer to the 2011 Honda warranty brochure. You can also contact your local Honda dealership, and with the right information, they can look up any details you have questions about. Before contacting the dealership, have your car’s year, make, model, trim, and vehicle identification number handy. The dealership will use this information to look up your unique 2011 Honda CR-Z.
Your 2011 Honda CR-Z did have a limited warranty under the original New Vehicle Limited Warranty that expired after three years or 36,000 miles. The Limited Six-Month Warranty covered replacement batteries for key fobs and remotes as well as the replacement of original equipment wiper blades. This six-month warranty is expired.
Understanding what’s covered and what’s not is very important for any car warranty. Once the Factory Warranty expires, you’ll want some type of vehicle protection plan. No matter what type of warranty coverage you have, it’s essential to have top-notch auto insurance for your 2011 Honda CR-Z. To get the most coverage, consider having comprehensive coverage to offset the costs of repairing damage due to something other than a collision or accident caused by wildfires, fallen trees, or flooding.
Now that your Factory Warranty has expired, you may be looking to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, so 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.
