Beware: Battery goes right after warranty

ReviewJust a warning to those looking at this car.
I bought in 2002 (2003 model) and have been the only owner for just over 8 years.
Five months past the warranty, the battery failed and now I have to pay $3000 to have it replaced.
The car has less that 80,000 miles, but because I've owned it over eight years, the warranty has expired.
This is simply too much of an expense to be reasonable or fair.
It certainly doesn't justify the gas savings.
I am very disappointed in Honda and will not buy another one, because of this experience.
Best FeaturesI was very pleased with this car, until the battery failed.
Worst FeaturesI think that a $3,000 expense to replace a battery is WAY too much.
