Hello all, my first post here... I hope this is the right place.

Long story short, my daughter lives in CA and is not having luck finding a car and they seem to be more expensive there (used anyway). So I found a 2009 Civic Hybrid, clean CarFax, history of oil changes and brakes only. I started to google and saw many hits about Battery issues and even called the Honda dealer here and they said that this may be a firmware update, etc. The car would have 2 years left on the warranty for the batter, it is just under 40,000 miles. The cost is $12,000 and would cost me an additional (approximate, $1000 to ship). I do not want her to buy into a car that may become problematic and cost a large sum of money to fix.. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for any input.
