What’s Included in Your 2014 Honda Ridgeline Warranty?
All new Honda models include a Factory Warranty, also called a Manufacturer’s Warranty, with coverage on many components. The 2014 Honda Ridgeline had multiple warranties when it was new, although they have since expired. Below, we cover the details of the truck’s warranty coverage and whether it’s eligible for an extended warranty.
|2014 Honda Ridgeline Factory Warranty Coverage:|
|Basic Warranty:||3 years or 36,000 miles|
|Powertrain Warranty:||5 years or 60,000 miles|
|Corrosion Perforation Warranty:||5 years with unlimited miles|
|Emissions Warranty:||3 years or 36,000 miles|
3 years or 50,000 miles(California)
|Total Unique Recalls:||5|
The warranties outlined below include both mileage and time durations. The coverage ends on whichever milestone occurs first. For example, if a warranty lasted for three years or 36,000 miles, it ends after three years from the original lease or delivery date or when the vehicle has driven 36,000 miles. Review the FAQ section at the bottom of the text if you have any additional questions.
2014 Honda Ridgeline Basic Warranty
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline included a New Vehicle Limited Warranty with coverage on most components from bumper to bumper. This coverage lasted three years or 36,000 miles and has expired.
This warranty started when the Ridgeline was delivered or leased and covered the repair or replacement of any part found to be defective in material or workmanship. It excluded the following components:
- Emissions control systems (covered under its own warranty)
- Wheel alignment or balancing (after one year or 12,000 miles)
- Window glass
- Air conditioning refrigerant (after two years or 24,000 miles)
2014 Honda Ridgeline Powertrain Warranty
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline had a Powertrain Warranty lasting five years or 60,000 miles. This warranty covered key components of the transmission and powertrain. It has now expired.
The Powertrain Limited Warranty included coverage for the engine and cylinder head, internal parts, timing chain or belt, gaskets, and timing gears. Coverage was voided if any of the following actions occurred:
- Poor maintenance or installation
- Acts of nature
- Low fluid levels or the use of a fluid not specified by Honda
- Use of the vehicle in competition or racing events
- Abuse, misuse, or accidental damage
Odometer alteration, the addition of unauthorized accessories, and unapproved modifications also voided the Powertrain Limited Warranty.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline came with a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty with coverage for body panels that rusted completely through from the inside out. Its duration was five years with no mileage limit, and it has expired.
Only the Ridgeline’s first owner could claim coverage under the Rust Perforation Limited Warranty, as it did not transfer to any subsequent owners. Several exclusions also applied:
- Rust caused by immersion of the body panel in mud, water, or sand
- Rust caused by lack of maintenance, misuse, or abuse
- Surface rust on the underbody or other components except the panels
- Paint matching
- Rust caused by road hazards, including stones and debris
Air Conditioning Warranty
Honda didn’t offer a separate Air Conditioning Warranty on the 2014 Honda Ridgeline. Instead, the air conditioning system was covered under the Basic Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. It has expired.
After the first two years or 24,000 miles, the refrigerant in the air conditioning system no longer qualified for coverage unless it was required as part of a repair service covered under warranty.
There was no specific paint warranty for the 2014 Honda Ridgeline. If the paint was damaged while being transported to the dealership, that issue would have been resolved prior to delivery, but cosmetic paint damage did not qualify for coverage under any warranty.
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline’s original battery was covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. This warranty has now expired.
When the tires were installed on the 2014 Honda Ridgeline, they had separate warranty coverage issued by the tire manufacturer, not by Honda. To find out whether any coverage remains, contact the tire manufacturer directly.
Honda used the following manufacturers to get tires for the Ridgeline:
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline included a Federal Emission Warranty lasting for three years or 36,000 miles. Ridgelines sold in California and states following their stricter emission standards were covered for three years of 50,000 miles, with some parts covered for seven years or 70,000 miles. All of this coverage has now expired.
Other states that follow California’s rather than Federal emission standards include:
- New Jersey
- Rhode Island
Both of these emission warranties covered the following parts and systems:
- Catalytic converter
- Engine computer
- OBD system
- Crankcase control system
- Air conditioning system
- Transmission control system
- Evaporative and refueling emissions control systems
- Valve control system
- Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system
- Exhaust system
- Intake air system
- Ignition system
- Fuel injection system
The Clean Air Act also required manufacturers to extend coverage on the engine computer, onboard diagnostics, and catalytic converter for eight years or 80,000 miles. This coverage may still be in effect, depending on when coverage started.
2014 Honda Ridgeline Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
New and pre-owned 2014 Honda Ridgelines qualified for an extended warranty plan, known as Honda Care, as long as the Basic Warranty had not yet expired. This extended coverage lasted for up to eight years or 120,000 miles.
If purchased for the eight-year coverage period, a Honda Care plan could still be in effect on a 2014 Honda Ridgeline. Contact a local Honda dealership to determine whether any warranty coverage remains in effect.
