Is this a joke? I was told that Honda does not provide a free Roadside Assistance program. The only way I could get one is by buying one of the expensive insurance products that the Finance guy tries to sell you.

I have never heard of a car company not offering one of these programs for the life of the waranty (at least not for a long time).

That's odd! We have it here in Canada:confused:

With Honda, you got to pay for it, But like I said before...It's a Honda Except for our Friends up North


Honda Care for new Honda vehicles
If you're considering a new Honda, or if you've recently purchased one, Honda Care is a smart option. Even though Honda is known for its long-term reliability, it's good to know that you have that extra measure of protection for your investment.

With Honda Care, your new vehicle is protected in such critical areas as engine, transmission, suspension, air conditioning/heating and fuel system, etc. Honda Care is transferable between private parties.
Plans and Eligibility
Honda Care plans are available with terms ranging from 5 years/60,000 miles up to 8 years/120,000 miles. Honda vehicles within the original-factory-warranty period are eligible. Ask your Honda dealer for details.
Roadside Assistance*

With Honda Care "Sign & Drive,"** you merely sign the road-service invoice and drive away with no out-of-pocket service expenses.
  • 24-hour toll-free service
  • Comprehensive towing
  • Lock-out assistance
  • Battery jump-start
  • Tire change
  • Fuel delivery†

Toyota doesn't either without a fee, but Lexus does.

Bought a 8yr/120k, zero deductible, extended warranty for the CT today. Honda Care, paid $1080.00 for it. At the point where the cars need to last for us, aside from roadside, they give you 35.00 for rentals if the car is tied up being fixed.

Also have AAA, use that in the event the Ridgeline needs to be towed. Knock on wood, 4 and a half years and no issues yet.

We also use AAA. However, we've had it for about ten years and haven't used roadside service yet. I'm thinking about dropping out.

I have AAA as well, its got to be a lot less expensive than Honda Care. I have never heard of Honda Care until this thread, but based on what Chefmark outlined, AAA does it all for less, and has a lot of other side benefits that include coverage no matter what or who's vehicle I'm in, vacation planning, motel/hotel discounts, ID Theft Protection, and more.

Honda Care is the extended Warranty. The roadside assist and towing is part of the deal.

My roadside cost a whopping $1.50 a month for all 4 of our vehicles, combined, includes towing and labor, up to 250 miles. I'd rather use mine than ANY manufacturer supplied or aftermarket (read RIPOFF) extended protection plan

The day I buy an extended warranty, protection plan, undercoating, interior protection, or anything, on anything i buy, be it an automobile or even a blender, I think I'll start sighting in my new guns using my big toe as a target.
