Honda Extends Warranties Due to Fast Odometers

 Credibility Rating: N/A


Some of you may have already received notification of warranty extensions and/or payments as part of a class-action suit that was recently brought against Honda regarding the accuracy of their odometers. I can't believe it took so long. As I complained some 10 years ago in our own forums, the odometer on my '97 Prelude was off by quite a bit. I wish I could get a refund for the clutch that imploded at 37000 miles on that car (it didn't wear out, it literally shattered). I don't remember how much it exactly cost but it was well over $1000 to get it repaired. JP

The following story from Monday's USAToday provides details.

....

Honda says its odometers were accurate to within 3.75% on the high side and 1% on the low side, within the SAE standard. But it says it will extend the warranty mileage 5% and will pay lease-mileage penalties due to fast odometers, at least $6 million just for overcharges on vehicles leased directly from Honda.

...

Starting with '07 models, Honda tightened its odometer accuracy and centered in on 0%, spokesmodel Chris Martin says.

...

Vehicles covered in the deal: 2002 to 2006 Hondas and Acuras bought from April 13, 2002, to Nov. 7, 2006. Some 2007 Honda Fits also are included.
