Extended emissions warrenty on 96-97-98 Honda's (excluding passport)

This is just an outline, more info to come Thursday night. Attending another class and the instructor brought up emissions warranty. It varies form car to car maker, Fed law says 2ys 24000, except for cat
converter and o2 sensors, (8ys 80,000)but most manufactures pony up a bit higher. Honda lost a settlement and the fed government slapped a punishment on them. 96-97-98 Honda's (excluding the passport) have a 14 year 150,000 mile warranty on items that basically turn on the Check engine light. Also includes is a free oil change and cap rotor and wires when serviced at the dealership. Anyone else have info please chip in I'll be back Thursday night with more specific info.

Right on target with the warranty info. I have a 96 accord EX that I bought new in 96 and now has 122,000 miles. One of the OC sensors went out (the most expensive one about $500.00 installed) and the Honda Dealer replaced it under warranty. I love Honda and especially my 96.

I can also verify this. Check engine light came on at about 130,000 and I had the EGR valve replaced gratis at the Honda dealer.

Ahh, but did you get an oil change and cap rotor and wires? I got the notes at work, I'll bring them home someday.
