My 2000 Insight was broadsided on the passenger side by a 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Passenger side a mess, but they said it is fixable and no one seriously hurt. My question is, what about the batteries? Has anyone had experience. Should I ask the body shop to pull up the plate and take a look at them, or should I go to my dealer and have them checked? Perhaps it is not necessary at all to check them since they are on the opposite side?

i take it you had no frame damage or IMA component failures after your repair(s)! :roll:
[/quote] Still, even with frame damage and IMA problems, waiting nine months is ridiculous :!:[/quote]

i couldn't agree more....

did imention 5 different rental cars and two honda dealerships??
you guys are right!!!

Suburb shops to avoid like the plague:

Lee's Summit Honda

Jay Wolfe Honda

Both have NO CLUE how to fix this car.

When in KC......Independence Honda (15 miles east of KC).
