The Motorcraft replacement battery in my 2012 GT bit the dust this past Sunday after 4 years. I needed a replacement ASAP and the only parts store in town is an O'Reilly. And the only battery they had in stock for the car was a 2 year warranty. Basically no choice, other than cancel plans for the day, so I bought it. Wouldn't it be great if this cheap battery lasts the longest.

Decades ago cars would give subtle hints when a battery was dying. The last 4 batteries in various newer models that died gave no warning at all. You turn the key one day and hear click click click and that's it.

Why is it EV's battery packs have predicted lifespans of 10 to 20 years but you are lucky to squeeze 3 to 4 years out of a combustion car battery. If you are one of the lucky owners who gets 7 years out of a car battery, drive to your local casino while your luck is still hot.
