Acura parts which are distributed by American Acura and sold from, but not installed, by an authorized Acura dealership are covered for 12 months from the date of purchase. Parts that were sold and installed by an authorized Acura dealership are warranted 12 months or 12,000 miles from date of installation. Replacement mufflers have a limited lifetime warranty.
What the Warranty Does Not Cover:
Obtaining Warranty Service
The defective part, or the car it is installed in, must be returned by the purchaser to an authorized Acura automobile dealer. The purchaser must provide proof of purchase (contact us for a dealership receipt) as well as the installation, date, and mileage at time of installation (If the installation was done by an authorized Acura automobile dealer). If the car is non-operational because of a defect covered by this warranty, call the nearest authorized Acura automobile dealer for towing assistance. You will not have to pay for towing if the defect is covered by this warranty.
If you cannot obtain warranty service from your local Acura dealer, or you are dissatisfied with the service or results of the warranty, you can contact the dealer's manager. If you need further assistance, request for the Acura Customer Relations office that serves your area from the dealer that you are attempting to warranty at.
If you'd rather not go to your local authorized dealership, you may obtain warranty service through us:
