|villestrip||I just had my batteries replaced under warranty a second time. I think I'm going to sell them and buy some Odyssey batteries since I'm at 27,000 miles. Anyone running the Odyssey 65-PC1750??|

I guess that makes sense, I know cordless tools with the lithium ion don't like the frigid north either.
Guess I'll stick to the AGM

|scha0786||That’s a awesome warranty. Agm is the way to go. If I had the cash I’d be done with it and get lithium ion but be out $1000 just for battery’s.|

|BrewScrew||I've had to replace both of my batteries in the past year on my '17. Had bad corrosion as well. I went to Wally World and got the AGM Plats. 5yr warranty, Wally worlds are literally everywhere..|

Depending on what the dealers are doing, some replacing the batteries with OE assembly line batteries which often are virgin lead, or the aftermarket Motorcraft batteries which are recycled lead (in the parts literature on batteries some are listed as non-warranty replacements), the issue may or may not continue. The safest thing is a different manufacturer until Ford throws a flag on the supplier.
This amount of acid leakage should not be happening today with an OE battery, IMO.
