What Your 2013 Honda Odyssey Warranty Covers
The warranty on the 2013 Honda Odyssey is a generous and comprehensive coverage plan that has mostly expired. Still, it’s important to understand what the Factory Warranty, also called the Manufacturer’s Warranty, did cover to ensure any extended warranty you get now covers the same aspects. You can also learn which parts of your warranty are still active and in place today, if any.
Warranty terms are represented in both time and distance, with the expiration happening based on whichever threshold you meet first. For example, a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty will expire if you hit 36,000 miles in two years or have only gone 20,000 miles in three years.
To make the warranty coverage easy to understand, we’ve constructed this simple table that contains all the essential information you need to know at a glance. If you have any more questions, check out the FAQs at the bottom of the page.

2013 Honda Odyssey Basic Warranty
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty for the 2013 Honda Odyssey lasted for three years or 36,000 miles, and it has since expired. It covered the Odyssey for just about any kind of manufacturer fault or defect that could come up. While some parts of the vehicle were additionally warrantied separately, like the powertrain, the New Vehicle Limited Warranty still offered coverage for the minivan’s essential parts.
2013 Honda Odyssey Powertrain Warranty
The Powertrain Limited Warranty was good for five years or 60,000 miles, and it specifically covered the engine, drivetrain system, and transmission. It lasted a bit longer than the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, but it has also expired by now. Keep in mind that this warranty only worked if you maintained proper operation of the vehicle.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The 2013 Honda Odyssey’s Rust Perforation Limited Warranty offered coverage for five years without any kind of mileage limit, though that five-year limit has been up for a while now. If you decided to use this warranty for a corroded body panel and got it replaced, the new panel didn’t get additional coverage. Even if you got it on the tail end of your original warranty, it would only be covered for the remainder of the original Corrosion Perforation Warranty rather than an additional five years.
Air Conditioning Warranty
The air conditioner didn’t have its own warranty for the 2013 Odyssey, instead being covered as part of the Federal Emissions Warranty. This coverage lasted for three years or 36,000 miles, but it is now expired. Air conditioner refrigerant was only covered for two years or 24,000 miles unless it was replaced as part of another warrantied repair.
The paint on the 2013 Odyssey didn’t have its own warranty and was only covered as part of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. Note that this coverage was only good for manufacturer defects. It could not be applied to fix paint damage after an accident. Paint matching was also not covered, even if the mismatched paint was due to another warrantied repair.
The original 12-volt battery for the 2013 Honda Odyssey was covered for the first three years or 36,000 miles under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. This battery coverage is now expired.
Tires for the 2013 Odyssey are warrantied separately and exclusively by the tire manufacturers themselves. The details of your tire warranty would depend on the manufacturer, so you’ll need to contact them directly to learn more. Your local Honda dealer can get you in contact.
Emissions systems were covered under the Federal Emissions Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. Some states abide by a different standard, however, so your emissions warranty may have been a bit different. California and certain other states had coverage under the California Emissions Warranty, which lasted for three years or 50,000 miles. Some parts may have received expanded coverage for up to seven years or 70,000 miles.
The Clean Air Act additionally required Honda to specifically keep covering the engine computer, catalytic converter, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles. All the warranties covering the emissions are now expired.
2013 Honda Odyssey Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
When you bought your 2013 Odyssey new, there was an option to purchase the Honda Care extended warranty plan. This could have expanded your coverage for up to eight years or 120,000 miles, but you had to purchase it before your New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the 2013 Honda Odyssey warranty:
Does the 2013 Honda Odyssey Come With a Replacement Battery Warranty?
The 2013 Odyssey came with a Replacement Battery Limited Warranty, which worked on a tiered system that lasted for 100 months. For the first 36 months, you received 100% replacement coverage, including labor and installation. Beginning on month 37, the battery replacement cost was only 60% covered. Every 10 months or so after, the coverage would decrease by 10% until months 96 through 100, in which just 5% of the cost was covered by warranty. This coverage has now fully expired.
Are the Seat Belts Covered Under Warranty?
The 2013 Honda Odyssey came with a Seat Belt Limited Warranty, which lasts for 15 years or 150,000 miles. If your car is still under this mileage limit, then you still have coverage. With this warranty, Honda will cover any seat belt component that stops performing as it’s supposed to during normal use, but it won’t replace seat belts for cosmetic or comfort reasons.
If I Do My Own Oil Change, Will It Void My Warranty?
Your warranty will not be voided if you do your own oil change. If you do it poorly, however, your warranty would not cover the damages that may be incurred. Always use the type of oil that Honda recommends for the 2013 Odyssey. You can call your local dealership if you have any questions.
Can the Factory Warranty Be Transferred to a New Owner?
There was a time when the Factory Warranty could be transferred to a new owner, but that time has since passed. Warranty transfers are only permitted for the duration of the standard Basic Warranty, which is three years or 36,000 miles. The transferred warranty would only be good for the remaining time on the original warranty, too, as it does not reset. If you obtained the transferred warranty within that time period, however, the parts of it still active today would still be applicable to you.
What Voids the Odyssey’s Warranty?
Quite a few different actions can void the 2013 Odyssey warranty. Off-road driving and overloading can render the warranty obsolete, along with criminal and irresponsible acts like street racing. One of the most important factors to remember, however, is that the warranty will be entirely voided if the odometer is ever tampered with.
Overall, the 2013 Honda Odyssey had extensive warranty coverages, but most of them have expired. Fortunately, extended warranties are available for older vehicles through third parties to give you peace of mind on the road.
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.
