Understanding Your Acura Battery Warranty
Thank you for visiting the Scanlon Acura Service Blog. Here you’ll find solid advice, useful tips & tricks and a plethora of other information for your Acura.
Today we will be talking about Acura batteries and their respective warranties.
Since Acura became available in the US in 1986 they have always included the original equipment battery in the limited bumper to bumper warranty that comes with the purchase of the car. Over time the battery coverage for Acura has changed, so we will clear it all up right now.
Currently, the Acura battery warranty mirrors the New Vehicle Limited Warranty of 4 years/50,000 miles, whichever comes first, for Acura vehicle model years 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. As long as the vehicle is within these parameters and has a clean warranty record, the battery will be replaced at no charge to the consumer if it should fail.
For Acura model years 2010 and earlier, the warranty is 4 years regardless of the mileage on the vehicle.
If your Acura battery fails outside of the manufacturer’s warranty your best bet is to visit the Acura dealership and purchase a replacement battery. This battery is guaranteed at any of the 270+ Acura dealerships across the nation and carries a 100-month warranty!
Luckily for you, your Acura dealership will complete a complimentary charging system test every time you come in for service. If we find a problem with your battery and it is under the manufacturer’s warranty, we’ll replace it for free while you wait! If there is an issue and the battery is not under warranty, we will give you a competitive estimate and help you to prevent having an inconvenient breakdown in the future.
