Japanese carmaker, Honda, recently launched the first-of-its-kind 10-Year warranty package in the Indian market. Customers can purchase this warranty package annually until 10 years of vehicle usage from the time of first purchase. This is the longest warranty coverage available from any auto brand in India and is also transferable with the change in ownership. Currently, Honda offers an Any Time Warranty of up to 7 years and is now looking to expand it till 10 years. This new warranty package will not only reduce the total cost of ownership of the car but will also increase the resale value.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Rajesh Goel, Sr. Vice President & Director, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd, said, “We strive towards having customers for Life. In line with this commitment, Honda has introduced the industry-first Anytime Warranty Program up to 10 years for our customers. This programme is a testimony to the brand attributes of Durability, Quality and Reliability associated with Honda cars and we believe it will further enhance peace of mind to our customers.”
