There were 3 years of those inferior batteries. Honda switched to another manufacturer in 2019. They implemented a program to replace the bad batteries with a 10 year/100,000 miles unit.I also own a 2016 Honda HRV. Original battery died within 2 years. I had AAA roadside assistance replace my battery with one of theirs. That one lasted almost 3 years. Called AAA to see what the problem was only to find out they had sold and installed the wrong battery for my car. Turns out they don’t carry the appropriate battery for 2016 HRV. Luckily my money was refunded. I still need a new battery though.
However, there is a total cost of $120.00. It's actually a good deal if you're keeping your car.
My wife's 2018 did it, but it was in the garage fortunately.
These newer cars have a number of computers in them, but they help to keep you safe and sometimes your surroundings as well. These computers work together and are always on. Just think of things that are waiting for your remote or things that happen after you get out-even anti-theft systems.
