2015 Honda Fit Warranty Coverage
Most of the manufacturer’s warranties for the 2015 Honda Fit have expired or will expire soon. Make sure to get all issues checked and resolved soon in case there’s coverage available. Coverage availability will depend on how long since the car was first purchased and how many miles the Fit has.
If you’re having issues with your vehicle, from an illuminated check engine light to rusty body panels, you might wonder whether you can still benefit from coverage. With this guide, we’ll help you figure out which warranties you still have access to, if any.
You’ll also learn the answers to common questions Honda Fit owners ask us in our FAQ section, all about the latest recalls, and what to do if your warranty has expired.
First, let’s review what your 2015 Honda Fit warranty covered — and what parts and systems it still does. Your 2015 Honda Fit came with a Factory Warranty, which is also known as a Manufacturer’s Warranty.
These policies are measured in years and mileage, whichever comes first. For example, if a warranty says it’s valid for three years or 36,000 miles, it expires after three years or when you reach 36,000 miles in under three years.
Here are the term limits for the major warranties. We’ll cover each one in further detail.

2015 Honda Fit Basic Warranty
Under Honda’s Basic Warranty, also called the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, the manufacturer would have repaired or replaced any defective part on your 2015 Fit for three years or 36,000 miles, free of charge. Unfortunately, this coverage is now expired.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty also covered wiper blade inserts, key fob batteries, and remote batteries for six months, plus wheel balancing and wheel alignment for one year or 12,000 miles. The Factory Warranty did n ot cover everything on your hatchback, however. Exclusions included:
- Normal wear or tear
- Cleaning and polishing
- Adding fluids (unless part of a covered repair)
- Broken window glass (unless defective)
- Cosmetic flaws
- Damage to the body or paint
- Routine maintenance parts (such as air filters)
2015 Honda Fit Powertrain Warranty
Your 2015 Fit’s powertrain, including the engine, transmission, transaxle, and front-wheel-drive system, was protected for five years or 60,000 miles. Honda would have repaired or replaced defective parts free of charge. However, this warranty has also expired.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
Honda offered a nontransferable Rust Perforation Limited Warranty that protected your 2015 Honda Fit for five years with no mileage limits. However, only the vehicle owner could claim this warranty, and this coverage has lapsed.
Honda’s corrosion protection policy covered body panels that were perforated by rust from the inside out, as well as warrantied panels previously serviced for any remaining term of the original five-year period. This warranty had many exclusions, including surface rust on the underbody and rust caused by lack of maintenance, road hazards, or immersion in corrosive materials like water.
Air Conditioning Warranty
Your 2015 Honda Fit’s air conditioning system was covered for three years or 36,000 miles under the Emissions Warranty, but coverage is now expired. The refrigerant was also covered, but for two years or 24,000 miles, unless required under another warrantied repair.
The 2015 Fit did not come with a paint warranty. The Factory Warranty also didn’t cover cosmetic flaws or damage. Even if the damage was covered under your Rust Perforation Limited Warranty, Honda would not authorize painting the whole car to match the colors.
Honda covered your 2015 Fit’s original 12-volt battery for three years or 36,000 miles. The manufacturer agreed to replace your defective battery for free, including costs for labor and installation. This benefit is now expired.
The original tires that came on your Honda were warrantied separately by their manufacturer. Contact your local dealership for assistance if your Fit is still equipped with its original tires.
In 2015, Honda used the following tire manufacturers to equip the Fit hatchback:
- Yokohama (800-722-9888)
- Michelin (800-847-3435)
- Goodyear/Dunlop (800-321-2136)
- Continental (800-847-3349)
- Bridgestone/Firestone (800-367-3872)
The Clean Air Act requires Honda to cover the engine computer, catalytic converter, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles. Depending on when the Fit was purchased and mileage, you might still benefit from this coverage if your odometer reading is within guidelines.
Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranty covered your 2015 Fit for a minimum of three years or 36,000 miles (50,000 miles in some states). It protected the components that make up your vehicle’s emissions system, including the exhaust, ignition, and fuel injection parts. This warranty is expired.
Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranty covered components including
- Fuel injection systems
- Crankcase control system
- Valve control system
As a 2015 Fit owner, you might have had access to additional assistance if your vehicle fails a smog check. A growing number of states have adopted the California Emissions Warranty. If your area has stringent emission regulations, your protection recently expired. These states include
- New Jersey
- Rhode Island
To qualify for coverage under the emissions warranties, you must have kept your vehicle in peak working condition and maintain it according to the specifications in Honda’s warranty manual. Then, if your car fails an EPA-approved test, take your 2015 Fit and a copy of the report to an authorized Honda dealer. This warranty covered repairs, parts, labor, and diagnosis at no charge.
2015 Honda Fit Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase
You could have purchased an extended warranty through Honda Care if you did so before the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired. However, this is no longer an option because the 2015 Honda Fit is more than three years old.
