The Honda Pilot follows suit with the success of other Honda models and ranks in the top of its class, according to Kelley Blue Book, for its comfortable, roomy interior and upgraded safety and infotainment features. Honda leads the way in several categories for its modern design and technological advancements.
New Honda Pilots are covered by a 3-year, 36,000-mile limited warranty, plus a 5-year, 60,000 powertrain limited warranty. Additionally, if replacement parts are purchased from and installed by a Honda dealer, both replacement parts and labor are included as part of a 1-year Honda Genuine Parts warranty.
Typically, vehicle owners don’t have to worry about repairs in the first few years. It’s usually once the manufacturer warranty is already expired. It’s never fun to realize your warranty is no longer valid only after it requires a trip to the repair shop. How can you make sure there is no lapse in vehicle repair coverage?
A vehicle service contract is a solution to provide coverage after the Honda Pilot warranty expires. Depending on the plan, it will take care of most major repairs needed. Rental car fees, towing costs, and roadside assistance are also part of many vehicle service contracts, which helps alleviate additional finances and stress.
Rather than be faced with hundreds and possibly, thousands of dollars in unexpected repair fees, a vehicle service contract may cover major parts such as an alternator or the engine. An alternator replacement can range from $400 to $550* with one visit to the repair shop.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had coverage that covered these costs for you instead of having to pay out of pocket for any expenses? Verify which type of plan you are eligible for and exactly what is covered to gain a sense of protection when it comes to your vehicle. Find the plan that works best for you.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
