Shout out to Honda
We have a 2018 Honda CR-V. It's our second CR-V, and we really like the car. But, they seem to be hard on batteries.
Yesterday, when we were getting ready to drive to church, the car wouldn't start. The battery was dead. I have a battery pack, and was able to start it with that, so all was not lost.
This morning I took the car to the local Honda dealership. I explained, and the customer service guy told me he would have the battery checked. I asked how much of an adjustment I would get if he confirmed it was bad, and he told me he would replace it for free because the car was a 2018 model.
Sure enough, the battery tested dead, and they replaced it at no cost to me. And, they did it in less than an hour.
Needless to say, even though I am not happy that the battery died at such a young age (less than 15 months), I am pleased at how Honda treated me.
One other thing I want to mention. When I was younger, I used to get a warning that my battery was about to go out. I would get slow starts, etc, and have a good idea that it was time to get a new one. Now, it seems they are fine one minute, and deader than a hammer the next. Maybe it's all of the extra electronics the new cars have on them, but it sure would be nice to have a little warning.
Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
