You worry WAAAAAAY to much :? You are averaging 12500 miles a year, so in three years you will be around 73000 miles. I'm about to hit 100,000 miles and haven't had a problem. Most people on here haven't had a major problem. Your battery pack will still be covered for the next three years unless you put on a ton of mileage. The power windows are fixed with a little lube. Take a chill pill :!: You don't have a cool car, you have the coolest car :!: You're driving a Honda-relaxen0ck said:Oh God, so there's no way around paying 1000 dollars in the next three or so years? I won't even have the car payed off at that point. And to think, just this morning I thought I had a cool car.

Well if you read it on the internet it must be true :!:
I'd switch to riding a bicycle, but didn't this very thing happen to Lance Armstrong :!: :?: :?: Hmmm...
More seriously the gasoline and exhaust fumes will rot your lungs faster than any EMF will cook your ummm... well you know. So there's not much to worry about except making funeral arrangements.
A sex change operation would address 1/2 the problem though.
As far as buying an extended warranty this late in your game I'm afraid you've answered your own question.
Price an extended warranty as if you COULD purchase it. Put that money away in a savings/investment account. You will probably be money ahead since the standard 8/80,000 Honda warranty will take care of the IMA. My car is going to roll over 100,000 within 2 weeks. I have NO worry about the IMA.en0ck said:Been reading the boards for awhile, but just registered tonight. Here's my problem: I bought my 2000 Insight as a pre-certified used vehicle for about 12k with 35, 000 miles on it. Just 2 years later, I've sunk in an additional 25k miles, and my anxiety over battery pack replacement, power window repairs, etc, is growing by the day.
