All About Your 2016 Honda Odyssey Warranty
No matter how long you own a vehicle, it’s important to know what kind of warranty coverage it has. If you own a 2016 Honda Odyssey, you may want to know if you still have warranty coverage. The Manufacturer’s Warranty, which is the same as the Factory Warranty, may still offer some coverage.
The 2016 Honda Odyssey has a Basic Warranty that expired, but you may still be eligible to receive some coverage. As you read over the details, keep in mind that two parameters for coverage exist. For example, the Basic Warranty expired after either three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurred first. When you know more about your coverage options, you can decide how you want to proceed if something goes wrong. For additional questions about your 2016 Odyssey warranty, check out the FAQ section at the bottom of the page.

2016 Honda Odyssey Basic Warranty
The Basic Warranty, or New Vehicle Limited Warranty, that came with your 2016 Honda Odyssey was valid for three years or 36,000 miles. If the vehicle faced a problem as a result of a factory defect or poor workmanship, Honda would have covered repair or replacement costs.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty has expired. This Factory Warranty did not cover maintenance or accident damage. It also did not cover normal wear and tear of any vehicle component or the expected deterioration of parts. Additionally, it didn’t cover cleaning, polishing, or adding most fluids to the vehicle. The warranty excluded broken, scratched, and chipped window glass that occurred after the vehicle was manufactured. However, it did cover most vehicle components that failed to operate correctly.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty offered some short-term coverage. For example, the original key fobs, remotes, and wiper blades were covered for six months. Wheel alignments and balancing were covered for the first year or 12,000 miles.
2016 Honda Odyssey Powertrain Warranty
The 2016 Honda Odyssey Powertrain Limited Warranty covered the vehicle’s powertrain components for five years or 60,000 miles. Honda would repair or replace defective parts or workmanship affecting the engine, transmission, and front-wheel-drive system.
This warranty has expired, but when it was valid, it encompassed engine components such as timing gears, valve covers, engine mounts, water pumps, fuel pumps, and more. Some powertrain components were covered under other warranties.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
Honda offered a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty for five years with no mileage limit. Only the vehicle’s original owner could make a rust perforation claim. Coverage was available for body panels rusted through from the inside out.
In the case of rust that does not completely perforate the body panels, the New Vehicle Limited Warranty took effect. Under this warranty, Honda could decide to repair or replace the rusted body panel.
This warranty, which is now expired, did not cover surface rust on other parts of the body, nor did it include body panels refinished after the sale of the vehicle. Additionally, the Honda warranty didn’t cover body panel rust caused by abuse, misuse, or lack of vehicle maintenance.
Air Conditioning Warranty
Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranty covered the air conditioning system for the vehicle’s first three years or 36,000 miles. Additionally, Honda covered refrigerant for the air conditioner for the first two years or 24,000 miles.
Honda did not provide warranty coverage for paint-related issues. Cosmetic damage may have been covered as a result of a factory defect, but the owner of the vehicle needed to alert Honda to the damage right away.
Honda covered the original battery as part of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Honda would replace the 12-volt battery for free before three years or 36,000 miles. This coverage has expired.
Honda did not offer a tire warranty. Instead, the vehicle’s tires were covered by their manufacturer. Call Honda or the tire manufacturer to learn more about any existing tire warranty.
Honda’s Federal Emissions Warranty covered the Odyssey for three years or 36,000 miles. This coverage extended to the vehicle’s emissions control systems, including the exhaust gas recirculation system, exhaust system, crankcase control system, ignition system, fuel injection system, and intake air system.
The Federal Emissions Warranty has expired. Several states, including Washington, Rhode Island, Oregon, Massachusetts, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Jersey, Maine, and California, abide by the California Emissions Warranty. Additional coverage was available in these states for up to three years or 50,000 miles. Several parts received coverage for seven years or 70,000 miles. These components may include the fuel tank, fuel receptacle, crankshaft, exhaust manifold, fuel injectors, and fuel pressure sensor. The Honda dealership can offer additional information about the California Emissions Warranty.
The Clean Air Act offers additional coverage for all Honda owners. This act ensures that vehicle manufacturers cover some system components for eight years or 80,000 miles. You may still have coverage for issues that impact your catalytic converter, engine computer, or onboard diagnostics.

2016 Honda Odyssey Warranty Brochure
One of the best ways to learn more about your Honda warranty is to read the booklet. Some warranty coverage is still available, and your booklet will provide details.
The 2016 Odyssey comes with a Replacement Battery Limited Warranty that lasts for eight years and four months. Within the first three years, the new battery was at no cost to the owner. After the first 36 months, Honda will cover a portion of the battery cost. This coverage is still active.
If your vehicle needs emergency repairs under warranty, you can visit a shop that is not a Honda dealer. Honda will reimburse you for these repairs if they would have been covered under a current warranty and if all Honda dealers within 50 miles were closed. In order to qualify, the vehicle must also not be drivable.
If seat belts in the 2016 Honda Odyssey fail to function properly, owners have coverage for 15 years or 150,000 miles. Honda will not offer cosmetic repairs or replacements.
Honda offers coverage for Honda accessories, so long as they are intended for the 2016 Honda Odyssey. If Honda installed the accessory, it has coverage for up to three years or 36,000 miles. If the owner or somebody else installed the Honda accessory, Honda covered it for one year. Honda still covers new accessories owners install in the vehicle for this one-year period.
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. And remember, the best way to ensure warranty coverage (and prevent costly repairs in the first place) is to follow your manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule.
