2021 Honda HR-V Basic Warranty
On the day you took possession of your 2021 Honda HR-V, the New Vehicle Limited Warranty went into effect. This warranty is good for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. It will pay to repair or replace parts that are damaged due to poor workmanship. You still have coverage under this warranty unless you’ve reached the 36,000-mile cap. For the first six months you owned the vehicle, the key fob and remote batteries were covered, as were the OEM wiper blade inserts. This warranty won’t pay for:
- Cleaning and polishing
- Deterioration from normal wear and tear
- Filling fluids that aren’t part of another warranty repair
- Replacing parts that wear out due to use, such as brake pads
2021 Honda HR-V Powertrain Warranty
Your 2021 Honda HR-V’s Powertrain Limited Warranty starting on the same day as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and lasts for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. The Powertrain Limited Warranty will pay to repair the engine, transmission, transaxle, and front-wheel-drive system. Some parts of the powertrain may be covered under other warranties. Parts this warranty covers include:
- Cylinder block and head
- Timing gears and gaskets
- Valve covers
- Oil pan and pump
- Fuel pump
- Intake and exhaust manifolds
Transmission and transaxle
- Torque converter
- Transfer case

Corrosion Perforation Warranty
For five years, the original owner of the 2021 Honda HR-V can use the Rust Perforation Limited Warranty to have rusted panels on the vehicle repaired or replaced. This warranty has no mileage limit, but there are some exceptions to what it will pay for. Your HR-V still has coverage under this warranty, but it won’t pay to replace or repair rusted underbody panels. It also doesn’t cover rust from:
- Road hazards or debris, such as rocks
- Immersion in sand, water, or mud
- Misuse or abuse
- Corrosive gas or industrial fallout
Air Conditioning Warranty
The air conditioning system in your 2021 Honda HR-V is covered under the Federal Emissions Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles (three years or 50,000 miles under the California Emissions Warranty). You can have your coolant recharged for two years or 24,000 miles, unless refrigerant is required to perform a warranty repair. Both of these coverages are still in effect.
Unless your paint job is damaged due to a defect in workmanship, Honda won’t pay to repair any flaws that happen after you take possession of the vehicle. If there are flaws in your paint job, you should bring them to the attention of the dealer immediately for repair.
The 2021 Honda HR-V’s original battery is covered for the first three years or 36,000 miles of ownership under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. This coverage is therefore still active.
Honda doesn’t provide a warranty for the tires on its vehicles. Instead, the manufacturer has a warranty that covers your 2021 HR-V tires. You can find a tire warranty statement on Honda’s website or contact your dealer if you need help getting information on your tire warranty.
Under the Federal Emissions Warranty, your 2021 Honda HR-V emissions system is covered for three years or 36,000 miles. In California and other select states, the mileage cap for coverage is 50,000. This warranty will pay for repairs on parts of your emissions system. Some parts may be covered for seven years or 70,000 miles. Honda is also required to provide a warranty on certain emissions parts for eight years or 80,000 miles because of the Clean Air Act. The basic coverage under this warranty includes these parts:
- Crankcase control system
- Evaporative and refueling emissions control systems
- Exhaust gas recirculation system
- Exhaust system
- Ignition system
- Fuel injection system
- OBD system
- Transmission control system

These are some of the most common questions about the 2021 Honda HR-V warranty that consumers ask:
Your exhaust components have a Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty that covers the cost to replace the muffler, A-pipe, and B-pipe. This warranty is good for as long as the original exhaust components are on the vehicle. This warranty won’t cover the cost of labor for the removal or replacement of parts not installed by a Honda dealer or the other parts associated with replacing the warranted components, such as gaskets and mounting hardware.
A Seat Belt Limited Warranty will cover the seat belts in your 2021 Honda HR-V for 15 years or 150,000 miles. This warranty coverage starts on the same day as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The warranty pays to repair or replace seat belts due to poor workmanship or defective materials. It won’t cover the cost to replace seat belts for cosmetic or comfort reasons.
The 2021 HR-V comes with a 100-month Replacement 12-Volt Battery Limited Warranty. It pays for all replacement costs, labor, and installation for the first three years or 36,000 miles. When this time period ends, it will pay for the replacement cost based on how long you’ve had it. For months 37 to 45, 60% of the cost will be covered, all the way down to 5% coverage for months 96 to 100.
Like any vehicle, there are some common problems that occur with the 2021 Honda HR-V. Many people complain about the quality of the SUV’s paint job, saying that it tends to bubble and peel. Other common issues are with the accelerator and window gaskets.
Any accessories on your 2021 Honda HR-V that came factory-installed are covered under the Accessory Limited Warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. If you have accessories installed after the retail sale of the vehicle by a Honda dealer, they’re under warranty for the time remaining on the New Vehicle Limited Warranty or for one year. Accessories not installed by a Honda dealer but purchased from a Honda dealership are under warranty for one year from the date of purchase.
Using this guide should help you understand all the details about your 2021 Honda HR-V warranty. If you still have questions, you can always contact the dealership where you purchased your vehicle or use your VIN to look up what type of coverage you still have.
