The absence on the Site of our name or logo does not constitute a waiver of our trademark or other intellectual property rights relating to such name or logo.

You acknowledge and agree that information, and services available on the Site are protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights and laws and are owned or licensed by American Honda. Except as expressly authorized by American Honda, either in these Terms or elsewhere, you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit, or create derivative works from the System, information, or services.

 Disclaimers

 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 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.  We expressly disclaim any warranties with respect to any downtime, delays or errors in the transmission or delivery of any information, materials, or services through the Site.  To the extent any jurisdiction does not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, some of the above exclusions do not apply. 

Liability

By using this Site you agree that none of the parties involved in creating, producing, or delivering this Site is liable for any direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages, or any other losses, costs, or expenses or any kind (including legal fees, expert fees, or other disbursements) which may arise, directly or indirectly, through the access to, use of, implementation of, or browsing of this Site or through your downloading of any materials, data, text, images, video or audio from this Site, including but not limited to anything caused by any viruses, bugs, human action or inaction or any computer system, phone line, hardware, software or program malfunctions, or any other errors, failures or delays in computer transmissions or network connections.  

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 and current financing offers, 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 and 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 and 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. 

General Submissions  

You agree that you will not post on this Site, or transmit to this Site, any pornographic, obscene, profane, defamatory, libelous, threatening, unlawful or other material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law or regulation. Notwithstanding the fact that American Honda or other parties involved in creating, producing, or delivering this Site, may monitor or review transmissions, postings, discussions, or chats, American Honda and all parties involved in creating, producing, or delivering this Site, assume no responsibility or liability that may arise from the content thereof, including but not limited to claims for defamation, libel, slander, obscenity, pornography, profanity, or misrepresentation.  By entering this Site you acknowledge and agree that any communication or material you transmit to this site or American Honda in any manner and for any reason, will not be treated as confidential and/or proprietary to you, unless otherwise expressly stated in a particular area of this Site or in our Privacy Policy (such as information submitted through Honda Financial Services for account access). Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that any ideas, concepts, techniques, procedures, methods, systems, designs, plans, charts, or other materials you transmit to American Honda may be used by American Honda anywhere, anytime, and for any reason whatsoever.
