quadna71, I am in the process of acquiring a NOS (New Old Stock) 2011, with some 28 miles on it.
I am not concerned about model changes, they occur over time, all the time. I still get the original warranty and the dealer will install a new IMA battery, they said that Honda actually tells them to do so if the car is over 6 months old (and not used/sold by then). At the same time the car will get a software update.
With the original warranty, I am not worried about it. Well, I plan to lease unless I get a good finance offer. Then I can get the Honda 2-year additional warranty, that should do.
