Honda can partially pay for battery replacement?
I just bought a 2004 civic hybrid and realized that I do not have enough education.
This forum is a great-great helpful duscussion group.
MSantos, in one of the topics I think I read you said that corporate Honda can pay a half for a battery replacement. Did I understand you correctly?
Even though I bought this
Even though I bought this car used, and we do not belong to any dealerships, that's great news...
How do batteries behave when they are about to die?? My battery has always been over a half full..Would it just stop recharging or stay very low all the time?
I now understand that I need to read up a lot, and that is fine, but I was able to find manuals online, so forums are the onpy helpful thing really. I do not even know what some of the buttons do :).

I was told $3000 last year. My check engine light was on and the car wouldn't pass inspection. The only problem with the car is the battery. It runs fine, but doesn't function has a hybrid should at this point. The check engine light went off and I ran it over to be inspected. It past and has been running fine for a year. The engine light came right back on and now I'm out of luck because inspection is due at the end of the month. Not sure if it is worth paying the $3000 to replace the battery or buy a new car. Any thoughts? It is a 2003 with over 150,000 miles.
There are two companies that
There are two companies that rebuild the batteries for about $1500, depending on how many of your cells are bad. You can even have it shipped there and back to you.
One place is in New Jersey and another in Arizona.
just type in replacementbatteries.com I thought!
Better that then deal with the attitude of Honda.
What is that about, create happy customers after warranty for the same $1500 this guy charges or piss us off, hummmm hard choice!
