    This is what happens every time the price of gas rises. The dealers get all greedy with respect to the prices on anything fuel-efficient they have for sale.
    That price for a car with such high mileage and a tentative battery problem is too high, even if you were able to have an independent do a battery re-balance or replacement. Adding that to the price this dealer is asking doesn't make sense. It sure seems to get some great mpg's though.

    Hi Nevyn:

    ___The pack needs replacement given your code description. How they cleared that is anyone's guess??? Do not pay over that as they purchased this vehicle at auction for probably $3 to $3,500 if that. Honda should take care of that through their goodwill program but I would talk to your local Honda dealer first because if they do not, you are stuck with a $3,500 bill.

    ___About the EGR. I replaced one on TBaleno's HCH-I about 4 years ago. It was as simple as taking two bolts out, pulling out the old, inserting the new and bolting it back in. It only fits one way so no problem even without a manual. It is right up front on top of the engine as well. IIRC, the price for the EGR at the time was about $60 but it is surely higher today.

    ___Good Luck

    I've replaced/cleaned multiple EGR's; that wouldn't scare me in the least. at 110 thousand, the IMA battery is out of warranty, so it's my problem either way. No lights were on the dash, I'm surprised the dealer didn't check for/clear codes.


    The car was a trade-in. They want nearly $10 grand for it? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
