Much better offer than our dealer offered. Our Honda dealer offered a Privilege Program that was $49.95 and did not include any free oil changes. It offered complimentary seasonal inspections, three car wash vouchers, 15% off accessories, 15% off customer paid body work, $500 voucher off future purchase that cannot be combined with any other offer, complimentary shuttle service and special invitation to events.

He will only get 1 free oil change. The second service will require about $150 worth of inspections and lubes, if you decline those, the oil changes aren't free.

If you read the manual over, there's barely any language pertaining to services to keep warranty in good standing.

The Hondas have a maintenance minder program. If you don't follow the suggested maintenance I'm pretty sure you will have trouble claiming for your warranty.

Tire rotations, brake services. These will prolong the life of your parts and prevent you from replacing said brakes and tires prematurely.
What I see a lot of people doing is just oil changes. Then complaining when their brakes need to be replaced at 20k or that there tires are worn. Of course they are, you didn't take care of them.
When you buy a 30-50k vehicle, you are investing in your mode of transportation. Take care of it as you would anything else in life. Yeah the services are expensive. But replacing an engine or any major component then your fkd.
If you do your services elsewhere. Make sure you have a record for it in the event that you do need something warranty related.
As far as the VIP package. It's not a bad deal. Every service you go in for normally includes a oil change. Average customer walks through the door twice a year. So think of it as saving $100 bucks a year in services. It does keep you loyal to the dealership. Which is their main goal. Retention.

Your link does work for me...vkizzle wrote: ↑

As I originally stated, other than oil changes, there's nothing significant for service A&B, other than "inspections", which can be declined and will not void warranty.

May have misinterpret your post, but stealerships love to push unecessary work, in which they don't even perform (such as all items listed under inspections).

So if you skip an inspection that might have caught a failing ball-joint (these inspections come up about once a year), and the ball joint DOES fail, taking out the CV Shaft and Fender with it, as shown below, they're not covered under warranty. I'd estimate $1500-2000 to repair those 2 additional items.Exceptionally Few Exceptions.

Yes that is the "environmental fee".
If you get the free oil changes and regular oil changes they use a bulk oil, not sure if it is synthetic. You will only get "genuine" honda oil upon request and extra charge.
