I have a simple question? While charging, the cool air is sucked in on the passenger side of the rear seat and blows back into the cabin on the drivers is this correct?

Well that is what mine used to do...now after the battery replacement there is not blow back into the passenger compartment. I am sure that I was able to feel the air blowing into the passenger compartment. Now I hear more noise in the trunk and the trunk seems hotter when charging.

Honda tells me that everything if fine, but there are so few of these vehicles that I am not sure the tech knows what he is talking about.

Can you feel the return air flow with your hand?

I am betting that for some reason they directed the air flow to the trunk.

At what mileage and age of vehicle did you have to have your battery replaced, and did Honda pay for it?

I would agree that they did not route the air ducts correctly...but since they do not have another to compare my car to trying to have them agree with me is hopeless.

The battery was replaced at 122,000 miles and under factory warranty here in California. FYI the battery is stupid expensive at between 9 and 10 thousand dollars https://www.hondacarpartsdirect.com/oem-parts/honda-pack-assembly-battery-rmd-1d1005k0a00rm/?c=Zz1lbGVjdHJpY2FsLWV4aGF1c3QtaGVhdGVyLWZ1ZWwmcz1iYXR0ZXJ5LXBhY2smaT1UM1Y0QjA2MTBDJnI9MSZhPWhvbmRhJm89YWNjb3JkLXBsdWctaW4tc2VkYW4meT0yMDE0JnQ9aHlicmlkLXBsdWctaW4mZT12YXJpYWJsZQ%3D%3D

What we need is the battery replaced with a few of the Tesla S cells for more range.

Wow 9-10K? Did they replace it under the 8 year battery replacement warranty and if so did they give you a hard time about it?

I bought my car as a certified pre-owned and it was my understanding it came with an 8 year 120K mile battery warranty.

I believe the warranty is 150,000/8 year and there was no discussion, the dealer was happy to replace it.

Now if they had only hooked up the vents correctly.

FYI daily 240 charging with a 40 amp charger. Sometimes twice a day. Additionally it takes only 30 minutes. Did this quick charging aid in the demise of the battery...maybe?

I still think that one might be able to get 8 Tesla cells into the same space. 42 kw instead of our 6.7...90 mile range?

This is great information! I work for a utility here in Chattanooga Tennessee and chose the Accord plug-in because it's a great "normal" looking car - not out there design like most of the hybrids on the market. I couldn't afford a Tesla (yet) and by my calculations I travel about 50% of my miles on electricity. Even when running on gasoline, the Honda is very efficient. I had to buy mine in Chicago and have it shipped here.

The crazy part about this battery replacement warranty is that in California the warranty is 8years/150K miles, but in other states (like here in TN), the warranty is 8yr/100K miles. I currently have 44K miles and charge level 1 at night and level 2 during the day at work. My goal is to charge 2 (sometimes 3) times per day.

I would love to start a thread tracking how many miles everyone gets out of their battery. I'll post a picture of my vehicle, I added wheels from a touring model and leather inside. The tint was on it when I bought it.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
