I guess I should throw my $0.02 in on these.

I have had 2. One came in the escape and one came in my 2006 Mazda 6i. It was odd how they both died.

Escape:
Purchased Escape new in April of 2007. Battery died August of 2012.

Mazda6i:
Purchased new in April of 2006. Battery died August of 2011.

It was almost the exact same number of weeks that the two lasted.

We've had many Motorcraft batteries with absolutely fantastic life spans. The OE from the Expedition lasted from new (build date is late '01 IIRC) until December 2009. 8 years. The Exide that we replaced it with bought the farm this past winter at only 4 years old so it was replaced with a Motorcraft.

The OE one in my '89 Town Car lasted something like 10 years. My dad's '03 Town Car still has its original battery crzy

The one in their Expedition (a '00) lasted 8 years......

Just great batteries.
