Going to hold off until the current battery no longer charges. Don't fix it if it's not broken attitude.
You should be able to replace the defective module for a fraction of the cost. However, if your CSP is concerned about the reliability of the entire battery, you might want to act sooner rather than later. There have been several instances (including the disastrous Consumer Reports test drive in 2012) where Karmas have became completely immobilized. It's one thing to be bricked by the battery during the day on a dry test track; and quite another to be stuck at night on a highway in the middle of a rainstorm.
Just sayin' . . .
