I just want to know where Ford batteries come from. $50k SUV - 2-1/2 years old - 36,004 miles - (no warning- failed) wife stuck 2 hours from home - Ford dealer said past 36k ... paid a wrecker to jump start and went to Walmart for battery.

The southwest has been getting cooked this year. I have a van and camper with batteries untended in Mission Tx and suspect that they will toast by the time I get back in October. Will bring a battery down from my scrapped 07 HHR that's still testing good.
Glad I have a cheap insurance rider for tow, jump, lockout and tire changes

But that's okay - it's for "green" electric cars!

Thanks for that article, Shannow. It's another illustration of the fact that there's no free lunch.

It makes lead-acid batteries seem gentle.

Walmart batteries are pretty good.

The rare earth metals for magnets for wind generators is just as scary. There was a good news piece showing Chinese workers stirring huge tanks of sludge wearing simple air filter masks.

So little known fact, it is 36K from the mileage at initial sale. I bought my Mustang that had 292 miles on it so the 3/36 warranty actually went to 36,292. It is written on the sales contract and on an OASIS report.

O an Johnson Controls makes the Motorcraft batteries, Sanyo makes the Ford hybrid batteries.

I bet if you called Ford corporate and complained they would have good willed a battery.

Right... and there's nothing wrong with petrochemical processing and refining...
