Found this recently posted tidbit out there in the Insight Ethers - thought it was worth a post, as I haven't seen any such related recalls. Maybe worth a look.....

Honda recalled the Insight to replace two of the electrical modules of the hybrid system for free. Apparently one of the modules includes a charge controller, and some were "overcharging" the battery bank. They also extended the battery warranty to 150k miles instead of 80k at no cost.

I had it done, it's only a "software" upgrade. It took them most of the day as they need to completely drain the ima battery to complete the recall.
