Thank you. I went on the Hyannis Honda Care website to look up pricing. It doesn't show me any information other than this. How do I get actual pricing and I assume I don't need any of this until my 36k miles are approaching?Honda Care ONLY ! - https://www.driveaccord.net/forums/gtsearch.php?q=EXTENDED WARRANTY - BUY ONLINE only ! - https://www.saccuccihondacare.com/process.php & here - https://hyannishondacare.com/
Just a quick update on this.Any information on how to cancel the warranty purchased at the dealer?
As I stated in my previous post in this thread, I e-mailed Sean at Hyannis and quickly received a return mail that gave a chart of the Honda Care plans available and their pricing, good until the end of the month. I bought the C82 plan the following month, but the price was still the same. It was all very quick. I gave the credit card info, received an e-mail receipt, and about 10 days later got the policy and info packet from Honda. Pretty easy.Thank you.

Looking for the longest coverage in years as I only drive about 9k miles/yr but tend to keep my cars several years. Too bad they don't offer an 8 year, 80k mile option for new cars. So the 8 year, 100k miles ($0 deduct.) coverage might be the best option for me. Saccucci offers that option for $1,140. The 7 year, 80k mile ($0 deduct.) option is $870 so that 8th year is costing me $270.
.....d pricing on a 2016 accord phev/hybrid with 34k miles from Saccucci. They offer a 5 year, 80k total miles ($0 deduct.) coverage for $900 (plus $100 surcharge). That 80k mileage coverage would be a better fit for my annual driving than the 100k plan. They also offered a 5 year, 100k coverage ($0 deduct.) coverage for $1,125 (plus $100 surcharge). Without reading the contracts, I don't know if the Hondacare you purchase when new (less than 6k miles) is better or the same as the Hondacare you can buy later before expiration of the factory warranty.
If the coverages are the same, then it may be better for me to keep my $1,140, earn some interest and then pay them $900 (plus $100) later at the then current price. Even if the cost is the same or a little more in the future, at least by then I've gotten a few years of history with the car, know if I am keeping it longer, and put myself in a better refund position over years 4 through 8.
What I am missing here?
That is what it says for the D and C plans they sell for new cars less than 6k miles from what I can tell. When on I requested pricing on a 2016 with 34k miles, they sent me quotes for G and F coded plans and their email included the following statement (note the difference in wording on start date). They even included an example in the following:Based on my understanding and the information on the requested quote - 'Plans start on the day vehicle was first sold, and 0 miles'. So I do not think you can buy 5Year/80K at the 3Year mark and expect to get a total of 8 years. I am researching this same issue, so please let me know if you find out anything new.

They even included an example in the following:
These plans start on contract purchase date(additional time), and 0 miles on odometer. Example: A G58 plan will expire 5 years from Honda/Acura Care contract purchase date, or when the odometer hits 80,000 miles. If the plan was purchased today, that would be five years from today.
Yup, the quote on my 2019 said the same thing and included plans coded with a D or C. For the fake 2016 the plans were coded with G or F. The subsequent two digits of each plan code denote the time and mileage. The first number is the contract length in years (either from vehicle or contract purchase) and the second number is a code for mileage (i.e. 8=80k, 0=100k, 2=120k). For the plans for cars greater than 6k mileage, Saccucci adds a surcharge as follows:Thanks. Good to know that their is a difference.
Mine said: 'Plans for vehicles under 6,000 miles. Plans start on the day vehicle was first sold, and 0 miles.'
The best time to buy Honda Care is when your vehicle is still new and has less than 6,000 miles. This is when the longest terms are available and the best pricing is available to you.
You can purchase Honda Care as long as your Honda is a 2016 or newer and has less than 36,000 miles, but as you vehicle ages and you drive more miles, the plans available to you change and there are changes to the Honda Care pricing.
1. Rental car reimbursement. The standard warranty does not pay for a rental. Many dealers provide loaners, but these are subject to availability and dealer participation. Many dealers provide loaners only if you purchased the vehicle from them which doesn't help if you're out of town.Since a new accord comes with 3/36 factory and roadside from Honda, what benefit does buying Hondacare now give me during the first 3/36 (other than locking in the price)?
Appreciate the info. In my experience, I haven't needed such benefits but you never know. It's just hard to swallow that you're getting full value in those first 3 years for the refund to be prorated like it is.1. Rental car reimbursement. The standard warranty does not pay for a rental.

2. Trip interruption benefit. If your car breaks down more than 100 miles from home, HondaCare provides up to $100 per day for three days for meals and lodging.
3. Concierge services including:
• Emergency Cash Advance
• Emergency Airline Ticket Assistance
• Shipment of Personal Replacement Items
• Insurance-Claim Assistance
• Auto Glass Replacement Referral
As an aside, you can also finance HondaCare at 0%.
1. Compare the standard warranty for the hybrid components with the lengths and terms of the extended warranty. When I bought my Camry Hybrid in 2007, the Toyota dealer warned me about how "costly" the hybrid system was to repair- and pushed hard for me to purchase an 8 year extended warranty to "protect me" from expensive repairs. I laughed because at the time, the factory Toyota warranty on the hybrid components was already eight years/100,000 miles. Just as a point of reference... that hybrid Camry is still in my driveway 13.5 years and 180,000 miles later- and has yet to have a single part fail other than a water pump that was covered under the standard warranty.I will be going in to sign all the papers today. I put allot of miles on my car due to long commute. Any advise on the extended warranty the dealer will offer?
Price? With all this tech I am a bit nervous. I am a noob here. I did search and see some folks are getting LOTS of miles on their cars!
