First of all, there is always going to be wear and tear on the battery, but depending on how you treat the battery, there could be more excessive wear and tear that many are seeing here now. I've been trying to preach how to take care of the battery for the last 2+ years, and many at the time discarded what I said and decided that Ford should have designed everything perfectly and that no worries just plug it in all the time so its always ready to go. The trouble is, some people went beyond the car's design and intended use by trying to not use the engine at all which aggravated the issue even more.
Well unfortunately and sadly many of you have managed to damage the battery, most recently my buddy Ansy, even though I've told him stuff he chose to ignore it and always plugged in the car, sometimes driving on the highway at 70mph when he was late to work this year (and I told him don't do this start the engine), plus charging in the heat so he could try to always go on battery. Well that's all water under the bridge now, but my problem with this is that it is unlikely and not economically feasible for Ford to replace everyone's battery. Sure I would love to get mine replaced as well, and conceivably I could damage it on purpose to get that done, but is it really fair to Ford? I don't think so...You guys may be pushing Ford out of business if they had to replace all the batteries free for everyone.
Just thinking out loud here, what's your opinion about this?
