    What Does the Acura Warranty Cover for New Cars?

    This Acura warranty information applies to 2023 Acura vehicles and beyond. For specific inquiries about your Acura’s warranty coverage, we highly recommend referring to your Owner’s Manual or visiting the Acura Owners Site.

    New Vehicle Limited Warranty

    The Acura bumper-to-bumper warranty covers your Acura for up to four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. This comprehensive warranty includes most components of the vehicle, encompassing both mechanical and electrical parts. This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, cosmetic flaws, additional fluids, maintenance items (such as filters or brake pads/linings), tires, or broken/chipped window glass.

    Powertrain Limited Warranty

    The Acura Powertrain Warranty extends up to six years or 70,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

    It specifically protects major components like the engine, transmission, and drivetrain. Essentially, the powertrain warranty ensures that essential systems in your Acura are safeguarded.

    Emissions Warranties

    Federal Emissions Warranty

    The Federal Emissions Warranty, mandated by the Clean Air Act, provides coverage for parts related to meeting federal emissions standards. This Acura Emissions warranty lasts for four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. All components covered under this warranty are also included in the bumper-to-bumper warranty.

    California Emissions Warranty

    The California Emissions Warranty applies to Acura vehicles registered and operated in California or in other states that have adopted California emissions warranty regulations. Like the Federal Emissions Warranty, it lasts for four years or 50,000 miles.

    This warranty ensures that the emission control systems in new Acura vehicles conform to all published Canadian Federal and Provincial emission control standards. Feel free to explore these warranties further in your Owner’s Manual or visit the Acura Owners Site for more comprehensive information.

    Seat Belt Limited Warranty

    If any seat belt component fails to function properly during normal use, Acura will repair or replace it under the Acura seat belt warranty. This warranty covers the seat belt assembly for either 15 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, replacements due to comfort or cosmetic reasons do not qualify under this warranty.

    Rust Perforation Limited Warranty

    The Acura rust warranty extends for five years with no mileage limit. In other words, if rust perforation occurs within this period, you will have Acura Warranty Coverage,

    High Voltage Battery Capacity Limited Warranty

    Gradual capacity loss of the high voltage battery is expected and not covered under warranty. If greater than normal degradation occurs, it is covered for eight years or 100,000 miles.

    Accessory Limited Warranty

    All Acura Genuine Accessories are covered for up to four years or 50,000 miles, depending on the time of installation.

    Replacement/Remanufactured Parts Limited Warranty

    If you purchase Acura Genuine Replacement Parts from an authorized Acura dealer, they are covered for at least one year. Genuine Remanufactured Parts are covered for up to three years or 36,000 miles, depending on the place of installation.

    Replacement 12-Volt Battery Limited Warranty

    A replacement 12-volt battery (other than a Hybrid Powertrain System battery) purchased from an authorized Acura dealer is covered by a 100-month (8 years and 4 months) limited warranty.

    Replacement Exhaust Components Lifetime Limited Warranty

    This warranty covers replacement exhaust components for the lifetime of your Acura.

    Common Acura Warranty Repairs

    The following are common Acura warranty repairs:

    • Battery Replacement: Batteries can be affected by extreme temperatures. If you live in an area with high temperatures, your battery might be at increased risk.
    • Brake System Maintenance: Frequent “start and stop hard” driving can impact your brakes and their connected systems. Regular brake inspections and maintenance are essential to ensure optimal performance.
    • Wheel and Tire Repairs: Potholes, curbs, and road debris can cause damage to wheels and tires. Prompt repairs are necessary to maintain proper tire balance and prevent further issues.

    Regular maintenance and timely repairs help keep your Acura running smoothly and extend its lifespan. If you experience any issues covered under warranty, consult an authorized Acura dealer for professional assistance.

    What’s covered under the Acura CPO Warranty?

    The Acura Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty provides comprehensive coverage for pre-owned Acura vehicles. Here are the key details:

    • Limited Warranty: The CPO Limited Warranty extends for up to seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
    • Powertrain: This warranty covers major powertrain components, including the engine, transmission, and drivetrain.
    • Non-Powertrain: The Acura CPO warranty includes coverage for various non-powertrain components.
    • Roadside Assistance: The CPO warranty comes with additional benefits such as roadside assistance and trip interruption benefits. Acura provides two years or 100,000 miles of roadside assistance.
    • Complimentary Services: Your first scheduled maintenance is free, including an oil change and more. Additionally, you also receive one free oil change within the first year of ownership.
    • 7-Day Exchange Policy: If you are not satisfied with your CPO Acura, you have the option for a 7-day exchange.
    • Deductible for Repairs: Acura’s CPO warranty has a $0 deductible for repairs.

    These warranty details apply specifically to Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles. For specific inquiries about your CPO Acura’s coverage, consult your Acura dealer or refer to the official warranty information.

    What is NOT covered under an Acura Manufacturer Warranty?

    Here are the exclusions and items not covered under the Acura Manufacturer Warranty:

    • Normal Wear and Tear: The warranty does not cover the normal wear or deterioration of any part due to regular usage. Components that naturally degrade over time are not eligible for warranty repairs.
    • Cleaning and Polishing: Costs related to cleaning, polishing, or cosmetic enhancements are not covered.
    • Fluids: Unless fluids are necessary as part of a covered repair, they are generally not covered. Regular fluid changes (such as oil, coolant, or brake fluid) are considered maintenance items.
    • Broken, Chipped, or Scratched Window Glass: Damage to window glass, including chips, cracks, or scratches, is not part of the warranty coverage.

    Always consult your Owner’s Manual or visit the Acura Owners Site for detailed information on warranty coverage for your Acura vehicle.

    What is an Acura Extended Warranty?

    An Acura Extended Warranty, also known as Acura Care® Vehicle Service Contract (VSC), offers additional coverage beyond the original warranty for Acura vehicles. The Acura Care VSC can extend coverage for up to eight years or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

    This extended warranty from Acura includes repairs for specific components due to mechanical breakdowns, just like the standard factory warranty. Acura Care can be purchased before the original warranty expires and only from an authorized Acura dealership.
