COLLISION GLOSSARY

W
Warranty: A written guarantee, issued to the purchaser of an article by its manufacturer, promising to repair or replace it if necessary within a specified period of time or mileage. Use of other than Honda Genuine parts are not covered under Honda’s warranty and may nullify the warranty of associated parts and systems.
Water-borne Paint: There are two types of automotive refinish paint, solvent-borne and water-borne. The former uses a chemical to adjust the paint’s viscosity and allows it to be sprayed, the latter uses water, which is more environmentally friendly. Water-borne is relatively new in the US but has been used for years in Europe.
