2020 Honda Fit Warranty Guide
The 2020 Honda Fit’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty lasts for three years or 36,000 miles. It’s likely this factory warranty has time or miles remaining. Other warranties, like the Powertrain Warranty, are still in effect unless you’ve exceeded the mileage limit.
Although your 2020 Honda Fit isn’t very old, you may still wonder if you have coverage and what that coverage entails. If you have questions about your 2020 Honda Fit warranty, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve created this helpful guide that lays out all the details of the Fit’s warranty to help you understand what’s covered and what isn’t. You can keep reading to the end of the article to find an FAQ section that provides additional information that many people want to know.
You’ll see car warranties listed in limits of both time and miles, but these limitations are for whichever cap comes first. So if you reach the mileage limit of 36,000 for the Basic Warranty before the three-year cap, the warranty will still expire at that time.
