True all. It was not literally bricked, but they treated it as such.
Have to say they did not call it bricked, that's my translation.
(though 'dead' does not sound less dramatic)
I now added hyphens to "bricked" in the thread title.

With all the attention to the main battery people tend to forget that it has a 12V battery, and that that can fail.
If the car had an ICE they would have tried a jump start without even thinking.
It even has an ICE - though not connected to the drive train!
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
