A vehicle collision can be a traumatic and stressful event. Honda is here to support you, to get you back on the road and to keep your Honda, your Honda.
If it is safe to do so, move your vehicle to the side of the road. Otherwise, stop and ensure emergency services are immediately notified if any individuals are injured.
Inspect damage on both vehicles and exchange driver’s information.
Make a record of the accident. Include diagrams and witness statements if applicable.
Contact your insurance provider and let them know you only want Genuine Honda Parts used on your vehicle.
If you’re ever in an accident, insist that your insurance provider authorizes only Genuine Honda Parts. Why? Because Genuine Honda Parts are manufactured to the exact standard for fit, finish and corrosion protection. They’re the only parts that are covered by our warranty, and they are the only parts that are guaranteed to perform as only a Honda can.
Will my insurance provider automatically specify Genuine Honda Parts?
No. Imitation parts may be sufficient for insurance companies because they cost less, but they may compromise the fit, finish and corrosion protection of your Honda.
Aren’t imitation parts the same as Genuine Honda Parts?
No. Imitation parts often do not fit as well because they are not produced to Honda's high-quality standards for exact fit and precise operation, unlike Genuine Honda Parts.
Do I have the right to know what parts I’m getting?
Yes. It's your right to know what replacement parts are being used. Ask for proof that like, kind, and quality parts are equivalent to Genuine Honda Parts. Chances are, they aren't.
Is there a warranty on Genuine Honda Parts?
Yes. Genuine Honda Parts are covered by your vehicle's Replacement Warranty.
