What’s Included in Your 2018 Honda Fit Warranty?

The most comprehensive factory warranty for the 2018 Honda Fit, the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, only lasted for three years or 36,000 miles and has expired. Other warranties may have coverage remaining depending on how many miles the car has on it.

As your 2018 Honda Fit ages, it’s important to know what your Factory Warranty — also called a Manufacturer’s Warranty — still covers and what parts have expired. Reading through warranties can be challenging, so we’ve broken this document down to make it more accessible.

Our simple guide explains your various warranties and whether they’re still valid. If you’ve still got questions, check the FAQs at the bottom of the page.

2018 Honda Fit Basic Warranty

The 2018 Honda Fit came with a three-year, 36,000-mile Basic Warranty, also called the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which started on the original possession date. This warranty has expired. It covered repairs or replacement of parts due to manufacturing defects.

2018 Honda Fit Powertrain Warranty

The 2018 Honda Fit has a five-year, 60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. This warranty, which covers the replacement or repair of faulty engines, transmissions, transaxles, and front-wheel-drive systems, might still be valid, depending on when you got the Fit and how far you’ve driven.

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

The five-year, unlimited-mileage Rust Perforation Limited Warranty might also be valid, depending on when you got the 2018 Honda Fit. Honda will replace panels that rust through under this warranty, unless the rust stemmed from a collision, the elements, or neglect. Surface rust isn’t covered.

Air Conditioning Warranty

Honda didn’t issue a separate Air Conditioning Warranty for the 2018 Fit. However, its New Vehicle Limited Warranty covered the air conditioning system for three years or 36,000 miles and the refrigerant for two years or 24,000 miles. 

While this coverage has expired, Honda still covers refrigerant needed for warranty repairs.

Paint Warranty

The 2018 Honda Fit didn’t have a Paint Warranty, although any factory paint defects, flaws, and damage sustained during shipping fell under the Basic Warranty. You would have needed to bring your 2018 Fit to the dealership right away in this case.

Battery Warranty

The three-year, 36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty covered the 2018 Honda Fit’s original 12-volt battery. This battery coverage has expired, but while it was active, it covered battery replacements or repairs during this period.

Tire Warranty

The manufacturer of your 2018 Honda Fit’s tires issued its own warranty. A statement in the glove box detailed this warranty, which covered the repair or replacement of faulty original tires, including the spare. Your warranty might still be valid.

Emissions Warranty

The exhaust and fuel injection systems have an eight-year, 80,000-mile warranty to comply with the Clean Air Act. The 2018 Honda Fit has coverage left under these terms. The 2018 Honda Fit came with a three-year, 36,000-mile Federal Emissions Warranty. This warranty has expired. 

The warranty for certain parts is longer in some states, and the Honda Fit may still have coverage.

2018 Honda Fit Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase

You have extended your 2018 Honda Fit’s warranty with a Honda Care plan if you purchased this additional coverage before your New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired. It provides repair and replacement parts and extra services, including roadside assistance, for up to eight years or 120,000 miles.
