I've already got Honda America Committed to help with the IMA, they just said to go to the dealer and find out exactly what the car needs and due to mileage and just being out of warranty- they expressed a desire to want to help and work on a case by case basis- on stuff like this!
Good luck with that. My 02 is 2 months out of warranty and Honda told me the same thing. Took it to a dealer which said it needs a battery. Honda says because its out of both the 8 year original warranty and the 10 year extended one, they can't cover it. I can't really blame them and can't really expect to be gifted a $3000 battery when the warranty is pretty clear. So unless you got something in writing, I'd be a bit skeptical.
My thoughts too after talking to then again- a different rep made it sound different- so yeah im not depending on them. Car within first 50 miles of driving did Low/High recal. It was nothing I wasn't expecting- installing Grid Charger and harness ASAP- I think it will be just fine- Great cars, ill always own one- until the Gov. takes it away... Hah!
021stGen: Suggest you go spend the $100+ you would spend for the Honda Diagnostic Test on lottery tickets. Your changes of coming out on the positive side are better In addition, the schools are probably more worthy of the profit.
