Florida Honda Care

For those interested in purchasing Honda Care in Florida, this is what I experienced when I purchased my Pilot. My dealer informed me that Honda Care in Florida is regulated by the state. (Probably because its a taxable item here.) There is no negotiating a price, no matter what dealer you purchase it from in Florida the price is $2200. Dealer didn't even mention Honda Care when offering extended warranties.

First, the State of Florida does NOT set the price for Hondacare, the dealers are lying. All the state does is require them to have a license to sell it. Honda has set the price for their own business reasons but even then there's wiggle room. For example, I wanted the 8yr/120k mile w/$0 deductible and my dealer quoted $2880 claiming that if purchased from any Florida dealer it would be the same. When I produced a quote from Honda of Delray Beach for about 2500 they didn't know what to say. OP stated an even cheaper price.
Regardless, those prices are ridiculous when the same plan can be purchased in neighboring states for only $1300. Therefore, I "moved" on paper, had the Hondacare paperwork sent to an address in another state and then "moved" back to Florida.

There are those who claim Honda may not honor a Hondacare claim in Florida if purchased in another state. I say that's BS because many people migrate to Florida and bring their Hondas with them. From what I was told by several service guys, all Honda does is look in their system to see if the customer has Hondacare and go from there. They don't research all of your previous addresses, location of purchase or purchase price. You either have Hondacare or you don't.

Florida Insurance regulations consider extended warranties insurance and therefore regulated.

In Minnesota our HondaCare is $2.195.00 they told me that the HondaCare that a person buys out of state for $1,200.00 or so is under investagation. Could be a croc of BS, I don't know, I played it safe and got my HondaCare from the StealerShip.

You got ripped off. I too live in MN, however, bought our EXL RES AWD at Team Honda in Maryville, IN and paid invoice and they match the online Honda Care price of 1300 for 8yr 120,000 no deductible.

All the dealers will accept it, regardless where you purchased it in the US.

I purchased my Pilot in Pennsylvania and moved to Florida a few weeks later. My Honda has only been serviced at my dealer in Florida for the three plus years I have owned it, and I've never had an issue.

So if you already live in FL, how do you 'move on paper' to be able to buy? Just give them a relative's address out of state?
