Default Is there any way to intentionally fail honda civic ima battery to get replacement under warranty?

I am confident that some of the recalls and updates are intentionally implemented to prevent the battery from failing under warranty by severely limiting is assistance making it pretty much useless :/

My IMA light came on and when I took it in to the dealership they reset it, did a software update and said nothing was wrong. Honda has terrible customer service!! They don't stand behind their products. I wouldn't intentionally seek to fail my battery if they hadn't patched the software from allowing to fail under warranty just to save their asses from replacing thousands of batteries under warranty.

If you consider that a proper fix that is your prerogative lol Prolonging and attempting to prevent the failure while within the warranty period is no solution in my book. I think your opinion would be different if you were a hybrid owner with a failing battery that you purchased from a company you thought you could stand behind only to find out that they shit on their consumers who have invested significant amounts of income. I see their procedures and excuses in regards to IMA battery failures as a cop-out

Who ever said it solely meant battery failure lol When my car no longer performs as it once did, especially after the forced updates that I didn't want but had to get done in order to have safety recalls performed. On top of lack of IMA assist after updates and prolonged use, I would have to say that turning off the light is not a fix. You can read the thousands of others civic hybrid consumers that are dealing with the exact same problems. I am simply echoing and aligning with those thousands of other consumers.

So you are complaining because they fixed your car? The IMA light does not always mean a bad battery.
