On the 30 mile drive to the dealer with no IMA; I still got 57.9 MPG

Total cost of repairs - $7982

Battery Unit (MO 839009) - $3308.20

Control Unit (UN 707152) - $1601.98

Control Unit (UN 768745) - $727.88

Total Battery Replacement Cost Total - $5638.06

Repairs I Consider "Normal Wear & Tear" and was not asking Honda for assistance in cover repair cost. - $1650.60

Cat. Converter (633933) - $1347.30

O2 Sensor (LA 634457) - $303.30

Total Parts - $7288.66

- 75% (Honda will pay)
----------------

Honda Cost -$ 5466.495

My Cost Parts - $1822.17
Labor (Est..) - $520.00
7.5 % Tax - $174.23

I had a 2-page letter prepared and I was going to have my dealer fax it to Honda, but after the dealer did a diagnostic, the service manager called Honda and got them to agree to pay 75% of all parts, even the Cat. Converter and O-2.

Not sure when the IMA will be shipped, but I thing I got pretty lucky!

Even is Honda told the dealer they would pay for 100% and the dealer told me 75%, I still feel pretty good.
