Manchester Honda’s Lifetime Warranty
Who backs the lifetime warranty?
The Lifetime Warranty is backed by Great American Insurance Company. (GAIC) GAIC was founded in 1872 and is a $23 billion publicly traded company. With a solid “A” rated company like that behind the Lifetime Warranty, you can buy with complete peace of mind!
Which vehicles come with the Lifetime Warranty?
The Warranty applies to all new vehicles. It also applies to select pre-owned vehicles that are 5 calendar years old or newer with 50,000 miles or less, have passed our Lifetime Warranty certification program and a CarFax or similar inspection.
How long is the Lifetime Warranty really good for?
The Lifetime Warranty is valid for as long as you own the vehicle – for an unlimited time, unlimited miles.
Can I get the Lifetime Warranty at another dealer in the area?
No. Manchester Honda has been chosen as the select dealership in Central Connecticut to offer this Lifetime Warranty.
How much will it cost?
Zero. We are trying to build “Customers for Life” at Manchester Honda so the Lifetime Warranty comes standard with every qualifying vehicle meeting the criteria above and is included at no extra charge.
Is there any extra maintenance required to maintain the warranty?
No extra maintenance is required. You must simple follow the manufacturer’s Recommended Maintenance as referred to in the owner’s manual.
Do I have to have all of my service completed at Manchester Honda?
No. Manchester Honda’s Award Winning Service Department will certainly exceed your expectations but you are not required to come to Manchester Honda. To maintain the Warranty, you must perform the Manufacturer’s Recommended maintenance and keep your records. It is that easy!
Where am I covered by the Lifetime Warranty?
The Lifetime Warranty is good at any licensed repair shop in the United States or Canada.
Is the Lifetime Warranty transferable if I sell the vehicle?
No. The Lifetime Warranty stays with the owner as long as they own the vehicle.
Is there a high deductible?
No. $100 is the only amount you pay for covered repairs per covered component. If your cost is a warranty deductible charge imposed by the vehicle manufacturer, this Lifetime Limited Powertrain Warranty will pay for the manufacturer’s deductible.
What’s the catch?
There are no catches, hidden fees, or gimmicks. Manchester Honda provides this product as an added value to our customers for doing business with us. The only “catch”? You have to buy your vehicle here!
What’s covered under the Lifetime Warranty?
The components covered will be the exact same as the Factory “Powertrain” Warranty and including:
Cylinder block and head and all internal parts, intake manifold, timing gears and gaskets, timing chain/belt and cover, flywheel, valve covers, oil pan, oil pump, engine mounts, turbocharger housing and all internal parts, supercharger housing and all internal parts, engine control computer, water pump, fuel pump, seals and gaskets.

Manchester Honda is the select dealership in this area that offers you this powertrain protection at no extra charge. This lifetime warranty duplicates the factory powertrain warranty of the manufacturer and is valid for as long as you own the vehicle with no time or mileage limitations. With the average cost of $4700 to replace a Honda engine and the average cost of $2130 to replace a Honda transmission, this protection is designed to give you long-term peace of mind. Repairs can be provided by any licensed repair shop located in the United States or Canada. These costs will be covered as long as you maintained your vehicle according to the maintenance schedule recommended by the manufacturer. There is only one “catch” to get this benefit… you have to buy your qualifying vehicle at Manchester Honda!

When you purchase a Certified Honda or a pre-owned vehicle that sells for more than $11,000 you will get an additional warranty coverage. A Certified Honda vehicle gets a comprehensive 150 point inspection and the Honda Certified Used Vehicle Limited Warranty extends the vehicle powertrain coverage to 7 years/100,000 miles and adds 12 months/12,000 miles to the comprehensive coverage. On non-certified vehicles, the State of Connecticut requires that used vehicles carry a 2 month/3,000 mile warranty that covers safety related items only. Manchester Honda will provide a 6 month/ 6,000 mile warranty at no cost to you on any pre-owned vehicle that is not certified and sells for over $11,000 before sales tax, registration fees or any optional accessory charges are assessed. This warranty guarantees the proper operation of all mechanical systems, original Honda accessories and of course safety related.
