2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Question: IMA Battery Replacement
My 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid has 82,000 miles. Just recently my IMA light came on. The dealership told me that I need a new IMA battery, and the cost is $2865. Was also told that the warranty expired at 80,000. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this accurate information? - Visitor

My 2004 Honda IMA light came on in Oct 2010 and again this december. Was told I need to replace the IMA battery and the cost would be $2500. However I only have 54,000 miles on the car and the warranty (in Maryland)is for 80,000 miles. It appears that age as well as milage may be a problem for battery. I keep mine garaged and drive it mostly local, low milage. - Visitor
