Disclaimer of Warranties
This Site, and all information and materials contained herein, is provided to you on an "AS IS" and “AS AVAILABLE” basis, and AT YOUR OWN RISK TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. Although the specifications, features, illustrations, equipment, warranties, service manuals, recalls, safety tips, and other information contained in the Site are based upon up-to-date information, and while American Honda and all parties involved in creating, producing, or delivering this Site make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all material on this Site is correct, accuracy cannot be guaranteed. We disclaim, to the FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, all warranties, whether express or implied, including without limitation, any implied warranties of title, merchantability, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose and all warranties regarding security, currency, correctness, quality, accuracy, completeness, reliability, performance, timeliness, or continued availability with respect to this Site.

General Product, Services, and Financing Information
This Site provides information, including but not limited to specific product pricing, product specifications, used car values, service contracts, budget calculators, financial calculators, current financing offers, and basic company information for informational purposes only and nothing contained herein constitutes financial advice or an offer to sell, finance, or lease a specific product or service to you unless otherwise expressly acknowledged and apparent from the particular content.
The MSRPs (manufacturer's suggested retail price) listed on this Site exclude tax, title, license, registration, destination charge, options and any dealer documentary fees. Dealers set actual prices. All trade-in values obtained from Kelley Blue Book are estimates and the actual value of the vehicle may be higher or lower depending upon the condition of your vehicle, equipment and local market conditions. For some newer models, Kelley Blue Book may not have enough data to provide a trade-in value.
Our financial calculators’ estimated payments exclude applicable taxes, title, registration, license, and documentary fees. The current finance or lease options are offered only on approved credit through Honda Financial Services or Acura Financial Services, may not be available in all areas of the United States, and not all Honda and Acura dealers may participate in these programs. Current offers do not constitute an offer of direct financing or of any particular lease or purchase transaction. Rates and requirements vary based on geographic location and credit worthiness. For example, lease rates and payments will be higher for customers and dealers in New York State.
This Site also posts certified used car inventories provided from individual authorized Honda and Acura certified used car dealers. You acknowledge that American Honda is neither responsible nor guarantees the accuracy of any information provided and that all vehicles are subject to prior sale. You understand that dealers set their own prices, all prices and specifications are subject to change without notice, and prices may not include additional fees such as government fees and taxes, title and registration fees, finance charges, dealer document preparation fees, processing fees, and emission testing and compliance charges.
As a result, this Site shall not be used or relied upon by you as a substitute for information that is available to you from a third party advisor or from an authorized Honda or Acura dealer.
