All About Your 2018 Honda HR-V Warranty

If you haven’t had the time to read through your 2018 Honda HR-V warranty booklet, we can help answer questions you may have about what’s covered and what’s not for your 2018 HR-V. For instance, do you have a warranty for your seat belt, battery, or tires? We’ll let you know if you do.

If you want to know if your 2018 HR-V has a Federal Emissions warranty, we’ll help you figure that out and if so, what it covers and for how long. If you’re wondering what the difference is between a New Vehicle Limited warranty, factory warranty, or manufacturer’s warranty, the terms are used interchangeably and refer to the same type of warranty of three years or 36,000 miles. At the end of this article, you’ll also find an FAQs section that will answer questions many 2018 Honda HR-V owners may ask.

Factory Warranty

2018 Honda HR-V Basic Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V had a three-year or 36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, sometimes called a Basic Warranty or Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. This warranty has now expired for your 2018 Honda HR-V. When the Basic Warranty was valid, it covered most major parts or repairs due to defects in materials or poor workmanship, but it did not cover wear items (such as brakes or wiper blades) or maintenance items.

2018 Honda HR-V Powertrain Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V has a five-year or 60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty that is still valid for your 2018 HR-V through 2023. Coverage for this important warranty includes repairs and replacement parts for the transmission, front-wheel-drive system, and engine. In addition, the Powertrain Limited Warranty covers components of the 2018 HR-V’s transaxle through 2023.

Corrosion Perforation Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V did originally come with a Rust Perforation Limited Warranty which covered rust damage from the inside out, called corrosion perforation, on the body panels for five years with unlimited mileage. This warranty is valid for your 2018 Honda HR-V through 2023. Honda will only honor this warranty if the original owner or lessee of the 2018 HR-V makes the claim. If you find rust on the underbody of your Honda caused by salt, sand, or mud, the Rust Perforation Limited Warranty does not cover repairs or replacement of the body panels.

Air Conditioning Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V factory warranty included an air conditioning warranty, which was covered for either three years or 36,000 miles under the Federal Emissions Warranty or three years or 50,000 miles under the California Emissions Warranty, depending on where your car was sold. This warranty is now expired. 

In addition to this coverage, the air conditioning refrigerant was covered separately under the Basic Warranty for two years or 24,000 miles, unless refrigerant was required as part of a warranty repair. This limited warranty is now expired, too.

Paint Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V did not come with a specific paint warranty. Honda would have covered the cost of repairs for paint damage due to defects in the paint material or because of poor workmanship under your original factory warranty of three years or 36,000 miles. However, that warranty has expired.

Battery Warranty

The original equipment battery that came with the 2018 Honda HR-V was covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. This has expired.

Tire Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V has no warranty from Honda for tires. Instead, the original tire manufacturer has their own specific warranty. Your Honda dealership can help you contact the tire manufacturer. You can also find this information in the tire booklet found in the glove box.

Emissions Warranty

The 2018 Honda HR-V had a three-year or 36,000-mile Federal Emissions Warranty that has expired. California Emissions Warranty covered emissions repairs for three years or 50,000 miles, and this warranty has also expired. When it was valid, the Federal Emissions Warranty covered repairs and replacement parts for important systems including the active grill shutter, transmission control system, as well as the evaporative and refueling emissions control systems.

Even though the Federal Emissions Warranty for your 2018 HR-V has expired, you’ll still have the manufacturer’s coverage for the catalytic converter, engine computer, and onboard diagnostics for eight years or 80,000 miles under the Clean Air Act’s standards.

2018 Honda HR-V Warranty Extensions Available Upon Car Purchase

Owners of the 2018 Honda HR-V had the option to purchase an extended warranty before their New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired at three years or 36,000 miles. However, if you did purchase the Honda Care extended service contract, you have extra coverage.

Honda Care gives you coverage for up to eight years or 120,000 miles from the time of purchase before your factory warranty expired. Under this extended warranty, you’ll have coverage for select parts or systems of your 2018 Honda HR-V, including the engine, transmission, electrical, suspension, and cooling systems.

FAQs

Below you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the 2018 Honda HR-V warranty.

What’s the Best Way to Find Out What My Valid Warranties Cover?

Reading your downloaded warranty booklet will let you know the details of what Honda will still cover. Or, contact your local Honda dealership with information such as the year, make, trim, and vehicle identification number (VIN). With this information, the dealership can look up the specific details of your 2018 HR-V warranties.

Does My 2018 Honda HR-V Have a Warranty for Any Accessories? 

Your 2018 HR-V did have a three-year or 36,000-mile Accessory Limited Warranty that has expired. Under this warranty, Honda would have repaired or replaced Honda parts found defective in materials or from poor workmanship. This warranty would not have covered costs for Honda accessories installed on a make or model the part was not designed for, or for an accessory not installed by an authorized Honda automobile dealership.

Does my 2018 Honda HR-V Have a Replacement Battery Warranty?

The 2018 Honda HR-V has an eight-year, four-month Replacement Battery Limited Warranty, which is still valid for your 2018 HR-V. Honda gives the 2018 HR-V three years of battery replacement for free. After the first 36 months, Honda prorates credit for a new battery. Here is the month’s schedule percentage you’ll receive for credit for your new Honda authorized battery:

  • Months 37 to 45: 60%
  • Months 46 to 55: 50%
  • Months 56 to 65: 40%  
  • Months 66 to 75: 30%
  • Months 76 to 85: 20% 
  • Months 86 to 95: 10% 
  • Months 96 to 100: 5%

What Else Is Covered Under the Limited Warranty Coverage?

When you had coverage for your 2018 Honda HR-V under the three-year or 36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, you also had a couple of other short Limited Warranty coverages. One of the coverages included wheel balancing and wheel alignment for one year or 12,000 miles starting on the date of your factory warranty. In addition, you would have had coverage for the replacement of the wiper blades for the first six months of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. However, the Limited Warranty and coverage have expired.

Whether you have extended warranty coverage through Honda Care or a third-party source, make sure you always have the best auto insurance for your 2018 Honda HR-V including comprehensive coverage. This type of auto insurance can help cover repairs or replacement parts not normally covered under basic liability coverage.

If your factory warranty has expired and you’re looking to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, be sure to check out the CARCHEX+FIXD 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.
