    Hope one of you can lend some help. I just bought a new 2004 Element,
    and the dealer offers an extended warranty (of course!). I've only
    seen a "Example" contract...but I'd like to get feedback about whether
    this is really a Honda contrcat or ???

    The first page...titled " Service Contract Reimbursemnet Guarantee" in
    a "N.A.D.S" document....a company (?) in Lakewood Colorado...seemingly
    offering that I can get a refund as long as i don't "use" the

    Still, key information (like what IS coveraged) seems to be not well
    "Examples of Systems covered". And, so far the sample contract
    presenet, doesn't have any other "signature page" showing actually
    whom is tyhe contract between!

    I'm interested in a Honda Factory extended warranty, noit some crap
    administrated by a 3rd party!

    I assume one of you guys actually could shed some light on this...SOON

    Why worry about exented warranty for the first 3 yrs?

    I bought a extented warranty on the web, sold the vehicle after the warranty
    company put out over $1500.00, and they re-imbursed me the balance of the

    They probably all go thru a third party, they all get a piece of the pie.

  3. The factory Honda warranty will say Honda Care on it somewhere. If not,
    then it isn't Honda backed. Also check out This website gives the price
    you should be paying at the dealer. Print the website pricing page and
    your dealer will give you the factory backed warranty for that price. If
    they dicker with you, go elsewhere. That web's pricing cuts the dealership
    out of any markup on the warranty. Or so I was told.

    My copy of the Honda Care warranty says it in the top right corner.

    Good luck the Element.

  4. I was told that you are charged more for the warranty if you wait any time
    after purchase. I suppose that is why the Honda Care website asks for your
    milage when quoting prices. Test it some time. The price goes up as you
    add miles to the vehicle.

    Sure sounds like a third party contract. Personally I generally do not buy
    extended warranties, and when I do I insist on one from the vehicle mfg.

    Third party companies generate higher profits for the dealer ... guess where
    that money comes from ???
