2013 Honda CR-V Basic Warranty
The 2013 Honda CR-V’s Basic Warranty, also called a Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty or New Vehicle Limited Warranty, had a three-year or 36,000-mile factory coverage starting on the original date of purchase. However, this Manufacturer’s Warranty expired in 2016. When the warranty was valid, it covered repairs and replacement parts considered defective under normal wear and tear.
2013 Honda CR-V Powertrain Warranty
The 2013 Honda CR-V had a five-year or 60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty that has expired. When it was valid, this warranty covered powertrain parts that were defective or installed improperly, including the engine, transmission, transaxle, and front-wheel-drive components. Similar to the Factory Warranty, the Powertrain Limited Warranty did not cover parts needing repairs from normal wear and tear. Some powertrain warranties, also referred to as drivetrain warranties, cover most of the same components.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The 2013 Honda CR-V came with a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty that lasted for five years with unlimited mileage. It has expired. When valid, the Corrosion Warranty covered repairs or replacement of original body panels that rusted through from the inside out. If the Honda has rust that does not go completely through the body panels, the New Vehicle Limited Warranty would have covered repairs or replacement of those parts. That warranty has also expired.
Air Conditioning Warranty
The 2013 Honda CR-V did not have a specific air conditioning warranty, but main air conditioning system system components were covered under the Basic Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever came first. Honda also covered the air conditioner refrigerant for two years or 24,000 miles. Both coverages have now expired.
The 2013 Honda CR-V has no paint warranty. Speak to your Honda dealership if you believe chips or peeling paint were caused by defects in the manufacturer’s original paint job or from poor workmanship.
The 2013 Honda CR-V came with a Replacement Battery Limited Warranty of 100 months with unlimited mileage. Honda will replace the battery at no cost, including labor, during the battery’s first three years or 36,000 miles. After that time or mileage (whichever comes first), Honda discounts the cost and labor for the remaining 64 months on a prorated basis.
Honda does not offer a tire warranty, but the original manufacturer of your tires does. You should have a separate tire warranty document in your Honda listing the tire manufacturer and their contact information. If you need help contacting the manufacturer, your local Honda dealership can assist.
The 2013 Honda CR-V Federal Emissions Warranty was good for three years or 36,000 miles or three years or 50,000 miles in California. Additionally, the Clean Air Act requires manufacturers to cover the catalytic converter, engine computer, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles. Both types of emissions coverage have expired. When the Federal Emissions Warranty was valid and the 2013 Honda CR-V failed an EPA emissions test, staff at your Honda dealership would have helped your vehicle comply with these standards at no cost.
2013 Honda CR-V Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
When you first bought your 2013 Honda CR-V, you could have also purchased an extended warranty called Honda Care. This vehicle service contract was available only at the time you purchased the Honda. This extended warranty was good for eight years or 120,000 miles. If you purchased a used car, Honda Care was available until the original New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired at three years or 36,000 miles. Both warranty extensions have expired.
2013 Honda CR-V Extended Warranty Available Now
The 2013 Honda CR-V New Vehicle Limited Warranty has expired, and you can no longer purchase Honda Care vehicle service contracts. However, you can still obtain third-party warranties.

What Is a Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty?
Honda will replace any exhaust components, including the muffler, A-Pipe, and B-pipe, that have defective materials or workmanship if the original owner of the 2013 Honda CR-V makes the claim for repairs. This warranty is only valid for replacement exhaust components distributed by American Honda through the Honda Automobile Division. These parts must be sold through a Honda automobile dealer.
