Honda Marine unveils new warranty program

Honda Marine said it has a new and expanded commercial and government warranty program for marine engines and related products.

Honda Marine said it has a new and expanded commercial and government warranty program for marine engines and related products.

The new warranty, which Honda said is now the leading outboard engine warranty in the marine industry for commercial customers, doubles the current coverage from 12 months to 24 months and includes the rental business.

The new warranty for engines purchased by state, local, and federal governments adds an entire year of coverage, which is expanded from 24 to 36 months.

The company said both of the new limited warranties, which cover defects in material or workmanship under normal use, apply to Honda Marine outboard engines and related original equipment distributed by American Honda Motor Co. Inc.

Honda Marine said it fully backs them, compared with the outsourced, extended service contracts that other manufacturers typically provide.

The new warranty coverage begins for all Honda Marine engine models purchased on or after Jan. 1. The Honda True 5 warranty for consumer products is unchanged.

“Honda is committed to building marine engines that provide unparalleled performance for all of our customers, and the company stands behind this commitment,” Honda Marine senior manager Mark DiPietro said in a statement.

“The new, expanded Honda warranties demonstrate that commercial, government and recreational owners of Honda marine engines can count on the quality and durability of our engines, along with an outstanding level of award-winning dealer support.”
