I would check with the dealer to see if its 100% covered. If not go with the DieHard Platinum battery. I purchased it after my Acura battery crapped out on me. I went with the Platinum because I also have a system my car, and it has a 4 yr replacement warranty.

It's 4 years. I just looked on Acura's owners website for 2007+ for full replacement. After that it is prorated. And per the Service Manager, this was just changed in the past year.
edit: I just called the dealer, and they said 4 years on all Acura Batteries and it's not prorated. After 4 years it is.

For the 2007 (and 2009), it's 3 years (unless Acura has amended it) full replacement and then prorated to 100 months. Check your warranty books, pg 32: 2007 warranty book, 2009 warranty book:

Yeah, I deleted that post. It is 4 years, pg 25. The 3 yr is for a replacement battery.
They should give the OP a new battery for no charge. However, the replacement battery will have only a 3 yr full replacement warranty. Still a pretty good deal. I believe Acura has switched battery vendors and the newer batteries are better.
My battery is not dead yet, but all the electronics, heated seats (I have lumbar issues so I use year round), and plugging in all of my other stuff, I have had issues from time to time. The DieHard had the largest claimed CCAs of anything I could find with 15 minutes of browsing. I was just wondering whether anyone else had any experience with it.
It is a steep price, but I have had to jump it a few times in a couple of years in the cold windy weather in Quakertown, PA. I know that I leave things on occasionally that I shouldn't (like high seat heat).
I am pulling the battery to test it tomorrow so I may go the dealer route first. I am pretty sure that I need a starter but want to go through all the steps first and checking the battery is step one. I couldn't get it jumped this time and I definitely have power (12.9 volts measured). I pushed started it yesterday and drove it for hours. No turning of the starter.
Anywho, thanks for everyone's help. I am going to read the threads about starters.
Before anyone asks, I have 80K on my car and purchased it new in July 07.
