At Foundation Honda, We're About More Than New Honda Models

It's true that we have a variety of new and used Honda CR-V, Civic, HR-V, Pilot and Odyssey, but we also provide you with customer service when you bring your vehicle in for repairs and maintenance, and by offering help with financing. We are a full-service dealership that assists you with every step of the ownership process. Our team at Foundation Honda knows that you have a lot going on, and we're here to help lessen the burden.

BENEFITS
At our dealership, we want to make your next vehicle purchase an experience worth talking about. Our Global Lifetime Warranty program is REAL powertrain coverage, that lasts for as long as you own your vehicle. So, when we say FOR A LIFETIME, we mean FOR A LIFETIME!

While there is no deductible when returning to a Foundation Automotive Group store nationwide; there is a fifty dollar deductible when going outside of the selling dealers. The program pays 100% of parts and labor costs anywhere in the USA! There is NO maximum mileage and NO maximum ownership term.

Buy your next vehicle with complete confidence, and never pay for repairs to the most expensive components of your vehicle. Simply complete the customary maintenance outlined in your Global Lifetime Warranty agreement and you're covered For Life!
We run all of our pre-owned vehicles through a rigorous safety and mechanical inspection. Once the vehicle passes all of our inspections, only then will it receive lifetime powertrain coverage.

MAINTAIN WITH US
As your repair facility, we know the necessary services to perform, making it easier for you to keep your agreement valid.

Our ASE certified technicians give you the peace-of-mind that your vehicle is being properly serviced.

Plus, at time of claim, we will assist with submitting the required service records, making the claims process efficient and easy.

OUR GUARANTEE
If you ever have a powertrain failure that exceeds your vehicle's value, the Global Lifetime Warranty program will pay you the full NADA retail value of your vehicle at that time, and you keep your vehicle!
