Hybrid Battery Warranty???
Under another forum topic, a new CRZ owner has posted that it reads in the warranty booklet that the Hybrid battery is only fully warranted for 3 years and starting on the first day of year 3, the battery warranty becomes prorated and does not include installation.
If this is indeed true I think I will be canceling my CRZ order.
Up until now, it seemed that Honda has been pretty generous about hybrid battery replacement. I know one original Insight owner, here in Hawaii, who had her Hybrid battery changed out twice by Honda at no charge. That kind of warranty gave the to confidence to buy a hybrid without fear of high battery replacement costs down the road. I also know that Honda has replaced tons of Civic Hybrid batteries in the past couple years at no charge to customers. I am afraid that they might have seen the costs of their old warranty and have changed their policy.
Can other US owners carefully read their warranty booklets and report if this prorating policy for battery replacement is indeed true?
