Uhh, I dunno.  I have not heard of any warranty replacements.

 I've heard on this group about a replacement done due to a stereo shop using
4 inch self-tapping screws on a speaker installation, impaling two inches of
screw into several cells. I can also imagine that if hit hard enough from
behind, the batteries would need replacement (along with everything else
behind the drivers compartment!)

In addition, the main (traction) battery is modular.  In the rare event of
a failure, the entire battery doesn't ned to be replaced, just the failed
module.  In California and other California-emission states the battery
warranty is 10 years and 120,000 miles, far longer than any gasoline
engine warranty.

And what kind of batteries is a GM mechanic changing anyway?
