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

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


Experts are often wrong, but rarely in doubt.

It makes lead-acid batteries seem gentle.

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.
