What Your 2007 Honda Pilot Warranty Covers
The 2007 Pilot came with a warranty that covered the basics, corrosion, drivetrain, and more. Understanding the details of a warranty can be tough, but reading about your vehicle’s warranty can help you make the most of your coverage.
Typically, cars don’t break down all at once. You may experience problems with certain parts like the tires, batteries, and air conditioner at different moments, so it’s important to know just how long your warranty lasts to make the check engine light less daunting. The length of a warranty is measured in terms of both time and mileage and goes by whichever threshold is reached first. For example, a three-year or 36,000-mile warranty may be over after one year if you reach 36,000 miles; if you’ve only got 25,000 miles by the end of the third year, the warranty is over in that case as well.

Read on to learn more about the warranty that covered your 2007 Honda Pilot, and review the FAQs to learn more about the specifics of your warranty.
2007 Honda Pilot Factory Warranty
The standard warranty that came with the vehicle is known as the factory warranty, and it’s the coverage Honda issued for every new 2007 Pilot sold.
2007 Honda Pilot Basic Warranty
The three-year or 36,000-mile Basic Warranty for the 2007 Pilot covered just about all the essential parts for any defect or workmanship issue that developed as a result of normal use.
Note that this warranty specifically covered errors and malfunctions due to poor workmanship or defect, so some damage caused by negligence wouldn’t qualify.
2007 Honda Pilot Powertrain Warranty
The powertrain on the 2007 Pilot was covered for five years or 60,000 miles, and it specifically protected against workmanship defects with the engine, transmission, transaxle, and drivetrain system, whether front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Corrosion Perforation Warranty
Honda only covered rust or corrosion that rusted all the way through a body panel for the first five years with unlimited miles. Only the original owner could make a claim under this warranty, and considering that the time limit was five years, this warranty has now expired.
Air Conditioning Warranty
There was no specific Air Conditioning Warranty for the Pilot, as it was included in the Basic Warranty, which has expired. The only exception is that refrigerant recharges were covered for just the first year.
The paint coverage was included as part of the Basic Warranty, but it has since expired. There have been some Honda extended paint warranties offered by the manufacturer in the past, but the 2007 Pilot does not qualify.
The Battery Warranty covered the battery that came with the car for three years with unlimited miles. This has now expired.
The Tire Warranty is separate from the Honda manufacturer’s warranty, as tire makers determine the details of their warranties. These can vary depending on the maker, with companies like Yokohama, Michelin, Goodyear, and others having their own warranty policies.
Your local Honda dealer can help you get in contact with your tire manufacturer for details about your tire warranty.
Emissions coverage for the 2007 Pilot lasted for three years or 36,000 miles. Pilots sold in California and states following their more strict standards were covered for at least three years or 50,000 miles, with some components covered for seven years or 70,000 miles. These states include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Also, the Clean Air Act necessitates that some parts like the catalytic converter, on-board diagnostic system, and engine computer be covered for eight years or 80,000 miles.

2007 Honda Pilot Warranty Brochure/Booklet
You can explore the details of the warranty yourself by looking through the 2007 Honda Pilot Warranty Booklet.
Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about the 2007 Honda Pilot warranty.
Replacement parts for the 2007 Pilot were covered for one year or 12,000 miles, and they had to be purchased from a Honda dealer, though they could be installed by someone else. Any remanufactured parts bought from and installed by a Honda dealer were covered for three years or 36,000 miles.
Accessories for the 2007 Pilot were covered for either the remaining time on the new vehicle limited warranty or for one year or 12,000 miles, depending on which was the longer period of time. For example, if you had two years left on the new vehicle limited warranty, that would have been the limit on accessory coverage. If you had six months left, the one-year limit would have been used instead.
A lot of the warranty coverage was dependent on the proper operation of the vehicle on the part of the driver, and what this exactly means is detailed in the warranty booklet. Specifically, it involves getting regular maintenance, operating the vehicle within legal speed limits, not exceeding load limitations, and using the right kind of gas.
Given how old the 2007 Honda Pilot is now, you’re not likely to have any warranties still active on the vehicle. Even the extended warranties that were offered at the time have expired by a few years now. Fortunately, you can still get coverage for a 2007 Pilot for that extra bit of peace of mind.
If your factory warranty has expired and you’re looking to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, be sure to check out the FIXD+CARCHEX Vehicle Protection Plan.
