9th Gen Civic.... Question

Do you think Honda UK will "Keep Up with the Jones" and give the 9th Gen Civ a 5 year Warranty like Toyota, Vauxhall etc... ??.

Could be a big Selling point for me with all the high miles i do (25k/year ave)

Not sure. A lot of these 5 year warranties are pointless anyway as they don't transfer to a 2nd owner. Not many people buy new and keep it for 5 years.

Was thinking more of the 100,000 mile Warranty not the five years. i try to change mine before the 60,000 Miles are up with my 8th Gen Civic ( On my 3rd one at the moment)

If they extend the mileage as well they will still do the same. Not many private owners will do 100k as a first owner.

It is a trick the Korean brands have used for some time.

It would certainly influence my decision to buy. The repair costs quoted on this forum are astronomical so a 5 year warranty would help, as long as the small print doesn't make it worthless.

You only give these warranties if you care for your customers dont you?

Assuming you'd be buying new and driving/owning for that long - you are in. Just remember it will be whatever comes first on the mileage or age when it comes down to expiriy.

I've always bought low mileage 3 year olds and kept them for 2-3 years. In the 5 Hondas I've had, I've never had an expensive failure. In fact the most I've spent in one go was 250 on new discs and pads on an Accord. But that was just standard wear...maybe I've been lucky...

You also need confidence in the quality of your product

I don't think the Korean manufacturers have any more confidence than the next manufacturer - they just know most new buyers don't keep their car that long, and when the car is moved on the warranty expires...

I kind of like the look of the new i40 - shame there is little price incentive over an Accord tourer.
