Honda Marine introduces new warranties for outboard engines

(ALPHARETTA, Ga.) — Honda Marine is announcing a new, significantly expanded commercial and government warranty program for marine engines and related products.
The new warranty, now the leading commercial 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, expanded from 24 months to 36 months.  
Both of these 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. In addition, they are fully backed by Honda Marine, in comparison to the outsourced, extended service contracts typically provided by other manufacturers. The new warranty coverage begins for all Honda Marine engine models purchased on or after Jan. 1, 2016.

The Honda True 5 warranty for consumer products remains unchanged. The industry-best True five-year, non-declining limited factory warranty is the same on the last day as it is on the first.
“Honda is committed to building marine engines that provide unparalleled performance for all of our customers, and the company stands behind this commitment,” said Mark DiPietro, senior manager, Honda Marine. “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.” 

Honda Marine has a network of more than 1,000 dealers throughout the U.S. who are highly trained and equipped with the latest diagnostic and service equipment.  

Honda Marine exclusively features four-stroke outboard engine technology for high fuel efficiency, quiet operation, and low emissions. Honda Marine outboards share the same unparalleled durability, quality, and reliability of its legendary automobiles. With models ranging from 2.3 to 250 horsepower, the Honda Marine full line of current production models certify to California Air Resources Board (CARB) 3-Star standards, ensuring their availability and regulatory compliance in all 50 states.
