An upgrade to Honda's three-year/36,000-mile new-vehicle limited warranty, the roadside assistance program features lockout service, fuel delivery and towing. It also provides assistance for alternate transportation and hotel reservations.
Owners can call 1-866-864-5211 for help 24 hours a day, seven days a week from anywhere in the U.S., Puerto Rico or Canada.
The program provides reimbursement consideration for up to $300 in expenses incurred during the first three days following a vehicle disablement that occurs 100 miles or more away from the Honda owner's primary residence.
The Honda Fit competes with the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent and Toyota Yaris. The Honda Pilot competes with the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota 4Runner.
Edmunds says: An important thing for car shoppers in these segments to consider as they weigh all aspects of the vehicle purchase.
