I'd take the VIN from the ad, and call the service dept of your local Honda dealership. Ask them if there has ever been a warranty replacement of the traction battery on that car, they should tell you. It will give you a bit more info on whether or not it's been replaced. Odds are if it has been, it was done at a Honda dealer, and probably under warranty. If you go look at the car, make sure the IMA light on the dash comes on when you cycle the ignition key. So in other words, when you first turn the key on before you start the car, look for the IMA light, it should come on. If it doesn't, then someone may have disconnected the warning light.
