First, read your warranty. It's not a factory warranty (I'm guessing) so nobody here knows exactly what it says.

Can you go to any mechanic for warranty work?

Are there any disclaimers saying "not covered for the following conditions...."?

Did you go too long without oil to cause it to seize (your own fault)?

OK, so YOU bought it as a "CPO" car. I wasn't thinking of that program. Still, I don't know the wording of the warranty.

I bet you can go to ANY Honda dealer (just like the new-car warranty) but you can't easily go to a non-dealer repair shop. If you live near a big city, you should be able to shop more than one dealer.

It's usually the fly-by-night aftermarket warranty companies that have all kinds of disclaimers in there. Lots of excuses for them to refuse to honor the warranty.

Still, you MUST have gotten some paperwork when you bought it. THAT's what counts, not some printout from the internet.

We're glad it's fixed.
What happened about the warranty coverage? Why did you have to pay?

if it was the starter why could the mechanic turn the crank by hand?
