"But Honda’s Takemoto said no American consumer has yet to pay for a battery replacement on Honda’s oldest hybrid, the Insight. Some Insights have traveled 200,000 miles now, he said, and all batteries that have been replaced have been covered by warranty."

Is this true?

I think a few members in this forum who have had to pay, at least partially, for their replacement battery and battery management sytems.

One member of the Honda yahoo group, (username: Ferguson Foont) is another person that comes to mind. He was originally quoted something like $8,200 to have the battery replaced, but later the price was reduced to $2,600 as a goodwill gesture from Honda.

Freguson paid the $2600 earlier this year. I don't remember the exact month.

Most people who have had replacement batteries (and related management systems) have had it covered in full by Honda.
