It will cover owners for scheduled servicing under ‘normal’ conditions for the first five years or 100,000km, whichever occurs first.
As part of the plan, the Japanese carmaker has also introduced an ‘adaptive’ servicing scheme. Items such as dust and pollen filters, air filters and brake fluid only being attended to when required, rather than simply ‘by the book’.
Owners driving fewer kilometres between services will thus benefit from lower servicing costs. Extending the life of parts that do not need replacement will also reduce the environmental impact of servicing.
The replacement of these parts however would still occur once they'd served their maximum distance (or maximum period in use).
Honda’s current CR-Z, Jazz Hybrid, CR-V, Civic and Accord models are all set to benefit from the capped-price and adaptive servicing scheme. The all-new Honda Odyssey arriving in the first quarter of 2014 will also then be included.
“We are pleased to offer Capped Price Servicing to our customers for the first time,” Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins said.
“We are committed to providing our customers with choice, value for money and the very best after-sales service in the market.”
Honda’s capped-price and adaptive servicing schemes begin this week. Owners wishing to find out more should contact their local dealer.
