It's been a few years since I've logged in here, but am looking for some insight. I no longer have my 2004 Taurus (was tough to let it go), and now have a 2016 Fusion. My 12V battery recently died and I had to have it replaced. It was the original battery for the car, which has been in service for just under two and a half years. The OEM battery is the Motorcraft Tough Max battery, which has a three year warranty. My dealer told me that a replacement would not be covered because my bumper to bumper warranty expired based on mileage. I was also told that if I'd purchased the battery separate from the car, it would have been covered for three years under the battery's warranty, which wouldn't have a mileage component. It seems to me that if the battery has its own warranty coverage, car's warranty wouldn't supersede it. Does this make sense? Has anyone else dealt with this?
