"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?

On a similar question, how much does Honda now charge to replace the battery (and all the stuff that goes with it)?

Ours has been / is being replaced right now...under warranty. Our genius dealer put the battery in but forgot to install the BCM and MCM with it. Those go in next weekend. I believe our service adviser said it would have been about $5k for the parts. That incudes all three parts, not including labor. If you have a newer Insight, only the battery has to be replaced. I think that's around $2500.
