Honda has announced a new extended warranty scheme in India. Named 'Any Time Warranty', this warranty scheme allows Honda owners to extend their warranty for seven years. Whereas in the standard extended warranty service, consumers can extend warranty for two years after purchase. To be able to avail this scheme, a car needs to be less than seven years old and should not have done 1,00,000kms. The extension in warranty is by 20,000/1 year.
Customers can avail this extended warranty a month before the expiry of the current warranty or the time frame of the first seven years of ownership. The Any Time Warranty scheme covers replacement or repair costs. That said, the warranty is offered only on parts found guilty which are covered under the scheme. The cost for Any Time Warranty will be different, which will be based on the model. The service provider will check few things like timely service records and the overall condition of the car.
We think this is a positive move from the Japanese carmaker, and it will surely help better ownership experience. The cars that come under Honda's new Any Time Warranty scheme are - City, Amaze, Mobilio, Brio and CR-V. Moreover, the scheme is also available on few discontinued cars including Civic, Accord and the Jazz.
