New to the forum, but I bought my car privately second hand, with a mostly full service history. Had a closer look after a few cleans and noticed the tell tale signs of roof rust.
Mine's an 07 plate, but as I was getting a few things done by my local Honda Dealer I asked them about the roof rust. They stated they'd have a look.
Next day, get a phone call telling me the roof will get done on warranty...
Hold on. 07 plate car, it's 2017... that's 10 years! Warranty is arguably for 12 years for all structural parts. I've had this argument with Honda UK before when looking to purchase a different car. They didnt see the roof as a structural panel but rather just a body panel and so would only be covered by the 6 year warranty which had no extension.
Get yourself down to a Honda Dealership and ask. The worst case scenario, it doesn't get done under warranty but they should be able to quote you for a re-spray and new seal!
