Anybody hear anything similar for us folks south :?: (still hopeful)Honda Motor Co. Ltd has determined that your vehicle is affected by a Warranty Extension.
What is the problem?
The IMA battery in certain 2000-04 Insights could suffer premature deterioration. If this were to occur, the Check Engine light will be illuminated and your dealer will be able to retrieve certain specific codes related to the IMA battery.
The warranty period for the IMA battery is extended to 10 years or 240,000 km, whichever comes first.
I don't know how Honda CA has handled such in the past. IIRC American Honda has typically refunded the customer. But such issues have been extremely rare, effectively extending the the warranty retroactively. So its more likely that each "situation" has been decided individually rather than a blanket policy being in place.florida_gators said:Does this mean Honda will refund money paid by Insighters who have had to pay, in full or in part, to have their battery replaced in the past within this new warranty period?
If this is valid in the US, I think my conversion from km is about 150,000 miles. I assume this will cover updating the MCM and BCM as well...
