So many things aren't covered. The things you mentioned wouldn't be most likely.I think crv383 said it best. I bought Honda Care on my 16 Pilot but not for my 18 CRV. My thinking on the Pilot was that I intended to own it forever. 3 years later I sort of wish I had not. But now that I've learned of all the issues associated with the CRV (fuel dilution, rear tire cupping, etc.) after I bought it and am experiencing ... I sort of wish I had bought it.
Its a personal decision that only you can decide. But rest assured Honda will take in more in premiums that they pay out in claims for a program like this.
Yeah. Whut he said.Have never bought an extended warranty. Most financial advisors will advise against them. Basically they are a term insurance policy......a hefty profit center.
There will always be a very few that swear by them because they had to use them. 999 times out of 1000, the insurance companies come out the winner.
A single failure of an electronic subsystem in modern CRV --> north of $2000.Throw the money in an index fund instead, and use the gains to pay for any unexpected maintenance.
Well said..........and since Honda has our Gen 5 V covered for another 3.5 years (6 yrs/unlimited miles) on most of the major components, $1200-$1500 makes a nice jingle in our pockets, giving peace of mind............at the end of the day.. this is a risk analysis and peace of mind decision that each owner must make for themselves.
I was not aware of this. I thought the basic warranty was 3 years/36,000 miles and the powertrain warranty was extended to 6 years/unlimited miles from 5 years/60,000 miles.Honda has our Gen 5 V covered for another 3.5 years (6 yrs/unlimited miles) on most of the major components, $1200-$1500 makes a nice jingle in our pockets, giving peace of mind.
I get your point, but "major components" now days in these modern vehicles is much more than the powertrain. The powertrain is actually one of the more reliable aspects of vehicles these days. It's all the secondary systems, particularly electronic systems where the risk lays.I’m saying “most of the major components”, or power train, are now covered for 6 years/unlimited miles on Gen 5 Vs. We’ve had our V for 2.5 years so Honda covers it for another 3.5 years. Everybody pays for factory warranties when they buy their new car.
I never pay additional monies to buy anextended warranty. I’ve never had a major failure on a vehicle. Lucky????.....maybe. I prefer holding onto my money and IF a major failure should occur, I’m prepared to write a check for vehicle repairs or vehicle replacement. Anything to do with a vehicle should never break the bank.
