How Do I Get Service for Repairs Needed Under the Clean Air Act?
Because your 2018 Honda Odyssey still has coverage under the Clean Air Act, simply contact your Honda dealership and they can make necessary repairs and make sure your Odyssey complies with emissions standards if needed.
Does My 2018 Honda Odyssey Have a Seat Belt Warranty?

This warranty covers any seat belt component that fails to function during normal use. It does not cover repairs or replacement for misuse, alterations, or malfunction of the seat belt during a collision or for cosmetic or comfort reasons.
What’s Covered Under the Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty?
Honda will replace or repair exhaust components under the Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty as long as the purchaser still owns the vehicle on which the parts were installed. This warranty does not cover replacement exhaust components, including the muffler, A-pipe, and B-pipe, if these parts were not installed at a Honda automobile dealership.
What Documentation Do I Need to Know if My 2018 Honda Odyssey Warranty Is Still Valid?
While your New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired after 36,000 miles, you still have coverage for the Seat Belt Limited Warranty, the Replacement Battery Limited Warranty, and the Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty. When you make an appointment with Honda, provide them with the year, model, trim, and vehicle identification number (VIN). The staff at the Honda dealership can easily find which warranties have expired and which ones are valid and what they cover with this information.
