Corrosion Perforation Warranty
The 2016 Honda Fit was covered by the Rust Perforation Limited Warranty. The warranty covered the vehicle for five years with no mileage limit, but it has now expired.

Air Conditioning Warranty
The Federal Emissions Warranty accounted for the air conditioning system and covered it for three years or 36,000 miles. Honda only covered air conditioner refrigerant for two years or 24,000 miles under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. All coverage has expired.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty may have covered some cosmetic defects as long as they were related to defective materials or workmanship. However, paint was not explicitly listed in this warranty, and Honda did not offer a specific paint warranty.
