2011 Honda Fit’s Factory Warranty
Honda offered customers of the 2011 Fit a Factory Warranty, also called a Manufacturer’s Warranty. This protection helped owners pay for covered repairs and replacement parts. Most of the factory warranties and extended warranties for the 2011 Honda Fit have expired.
If your car is experiencing mechanical issues, such as an illuminated check engine light, you’re probably wondering if you still have access to this protection. Don’t waste your time combing the internet for answers. Our comprehensive guide details the protections that came with your vehicle when it was new.
We’ve also compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions Honda owners have about their Factory Warranty coverage. This article will also let you know where you can find third-party warranty coverage.
Warranties are typically measured in time and miles and expire depending on whichever a driver reaches first. For example, if a warranty lasts three years or 36,000 miles, it expires after three years, or when you reach 36,000 miles in fewer than three years.

2011 Honda Fit Basic Warranty
Your 2011 Fit had three years or 36,000 miles coverage with Honda’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty. This coverage included repairs or replacements of any defective part for free. However, this coverage is now expired.
Honda’s Factory Warranty didn’t cover everything, though. The manufacturer doesn’t pay for parts or labor related to general wear and tear or routine maintenance. It also doesn’t cover damage to the body and paint, broken glass, or interior cleaning services.
2011 Honda Fit Powertrain Warranty
Honda’s Powertrain Limited Warranty protected your 2011 Fit’s powertrain components for five years or for 60,000 miles, whichever came first. This Powertrain Warranty is also expired.
Under Honda’s Powertrain Warranty, the company would have repaired or replaced defective components within the engine, transmission, transaxle, and front- or rear-wheel-drive system for no charge.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
Honda’s Rust Perforation Limited Warranty covered qualifying rust damage on the 2011 Fit for five years with no limits on mileage. Unfortunately, this warranty coverage is expired.
With this corrosion protection policy, Honda would have replaced or repaired body panels perforated by rust from the inside out. The company also extended this protection to panels previously serviced under warranty, but only for the remainder of the original five-year policy.
Air Conditioning Warranty
Honda offered three-year or 36,000-mile coverage for the 2011 Fit’s air conditioning system components under the Basic Warranty. This warranty also covered the refrigerant, but only for two years or 24,000 miles. This coverage has expired.
Honda doesn’t offer a Paint Warranty on any of its vehicles, including the 2011 Fit hatchback. If you notice damage to the paint or any other cosmetic issue, you are responsible for the cost of making those repairs.
Honda covered your 2011 Fit’s original 12-volt battery for three years with no mileage limits. The company would have replaced your battery for free, including costs for labor and installation. This coverage is now expired.
Honda does not provide a Tire Warranty. The tire manufacturer might have offered a warranty on its product at the time of delivery. However, it’s unlikely your 2011 Fit is still equipped with its original tires.
If you want to contact the tire manufacturer directly, your local Honda dealership can help you find a regional representative. In 2011, Honda used the following tire manufacturers to equip the Fit:
Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranty runs a minimum of three years or 36,000 miles or up to 50,000 miles in some states across the country. Unfortunately, this warranty has also expired.
The manufacturer’s Federal Emissions Warranty covered control system components, including the exhaust, ignition, and fuel injection systems. However, Honda also complied with the Clean Air Act. This program required Honda to warranty your hatchback’s engine computer, catalytic converter, and onboard diagnostics system for eight years or 80,000 miles.
You might have been entitled to additional emissions protection if you lived in a state with stringent regulations under the California Emissions Warranty. These areas require Honda to offer seven years or 70,000 miles of coverage. While this protection has also expired, the states included:
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- Rhode Island

2011 Honda Fit Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
Honda’s extended warranty program is called Honda Care. However, you must purchase this policy before your New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires. Unfortunately, your 2011 Fit model is more than three years old, so you can no longer buy a Honda Care policy.
2011 Honda Fit Extended Warranty Available Now
Your 2011 Honda Fit’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty has expired. However, you still might be able to purchase an extended warranty from a third-party provider.
