It doesn't matter what they say about the previous battery. If your in service date is less than 10 years and you've got less than 158k on it, then your battery is covered. I would call American Honda directly and find your in-service date first off.

Agree with Sam, you need to get that in service date. They are screwing you on this one otherwise.

Default Spoke to Honda America

today asking them what my service date was, and they said it was 6/3/03. So I pressed them as to why my batteries aren't under warranty per the service bulletin they put out in '06 (10 year and 157,000 mile). The lady left for a couple of minutes and came back saying the batteries are under warranty and as long as my car is under the mileage they would replace them. She also apologized for someone telling me the warranty on my present batteries was only one year. Thanks for everyone on this board who told me to keep on them. This is one board where everyone is really out to help each other. I just wish I had some knowledge about this stuff so I could help too. Anyway, thanks again. I plan on keeping my insight for a long time, so there will probably be more questions.
