Simple question: My parents are elderly and can no longer drive. I have to either sell their 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid with 50,000 miles or buy it myself for fair market value.

Should I not take the chance on the battery issue and just sell it for my folks? My concern is that sooner or later I would run into the same battery issue that many have posted.

I greatly appreciate the experts out there on this forum! Thanks for your help on this decision.
