Honda Extended Warranty?

Postby Northstream » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:01 pm



Hey all , first post, glad I found you guys!
Just filled out all the purchase paperwork last Saturday and cannot wait for the snow to melt, the dealer offered the Honda extended warranty during the signing process. Anyone buy one? Regrets? Glad you did? $700 for 4 more years on a 20k+ investment seems trivial but hey, it's 700 bucks!
Had to drive all the way to Bemidji to find a new 2010 in black :D

I waited till close to the end of the 4 year warranty before buying it. A lot of riders (me included) bought it from Honda Direct Line. I waited till one of the sales. Paid $450. I figure even if I never use it it may help the sale of the bike if I decide to sale it.

That's one thing I wish they offered here in the UK. All we get is a basic 2 year warranty, with no option for an extended one.

" Honda Direct Line" offers warranty sales? Googled and found their web sight, extended warranties link is under construction. How did you find out they were discounting the warranties ? I can wait but would like to get my info straight, thanks.

If you go to directlineparts.com then under the Honda category click on gl1800. Then down the left column you will see a list of items listed alphabetically. Near the bottom click on warranty. It is $499. They have several 10% off sales during every holiday. I can't remember for sure but you might have to join the gl1800riders.com board to get notified about sales. The gl1800riders.com message board is free message board similar to this one.

Tell your dealer about the Direct Line Parts price for the extended warranty. Ask him to match it.
Also, there were only a certain number of Wings on which an extra year of OEM warranty(making it 4yr rather than 3yr)was offered.
For those few, the extended warranty overrode the extra year given and still only resulted in 7yrs total warranty.
You mush purchase the extended prior to the end of the OEM warranty.

I would wait until some of the factory warranty runs out. What if you decide to sell the bike? Everyone wants the warranty but no one wants to pay for it! What if something happens to the bike? I do not recommend the extended warranty. The wing is a very well built bike. If women were built like goldwings, there would be much less divorce!!!LOL The factory warranty is more than good enough. But you have to make up your own mind.

So, everyone else will know: You must purchase the ext. warranty prior to the expiration of the intiial warranty.

Our extended warranty in a garage kept 2006 was $450. Its been in the shop for nearly 8 months since we got this with only 7k miles. We have 17 months of warranty left.

Tranny rebuilt, all kinds of problems due to faulty ECM, lots of small stuff replaced.......alternator replaced at 8k, pulled and checked again at 16k.

I am pretty sure the costs would have been over $6k and then some.

I would not own of these machines without the warranty. Just my two cents worth.
