Well, I took my car to my Honda Dealer this morning. Surprisingly the IMA light came on just this morning when I was flooring the accelerator a couple of times on my way there. I was really happy it did happen.
So, Honda did the checks and call me later in the day to say that they need to replace the IMA battery and it is still covered under warranty apparently due to a 'manufacturing defect'. Of course I was please with the decision and accepted that immediately. They have placed an order for the batteries and will contact me again as soon as they have it (not sure how long it will take though)
Well, sounds too easy to be true? I hope this will be the last of my problem with the batteries. I love this car a lot besides the IMA problem. Nonetheless, I am happy with the way Honda handled my case today.
