Motorcraft Battry Warranty woes...
I have to say, Iím a bit pissed off. My batteries are getting a little weak these days, I had them tested at a local shop, and indeed they recommended replacement. So I rolled over to the local Ford dealership and asked about replacement. The service writer asked if they were the OEM batteries because they only have a 36 mo./36K mile warranty. And no they are the 100 month warranty. So this would mean that the batteries in my truck are less than 3 years old so obviously well within warranty. The guy tells me that without the receipt, they would not do anything for me. He then tells me that labor to install the batteries would be one hourís labor@$65.00 and would take about 15-20 minutes to do.
So 1 hour of labor for a 20 minute job? He could of at least BSíd on that point. Normally I donít care to much about xx amount of hours labor on doing a job because I realize how that stuff works, but by this time I was a bit upset, so I let this guy know about it.
Anyway to make a long boring story even longer and more boring, my batteries are weak and Foed wonít warranty them even though they are obviously under warranty, and so Iím crying about it. OK, Iím done.
