    hi ive also just brought a 14 plate 24000mile smax sport last tueday and when straight from there to cornwall and like yourself once we were sorted on hols i sat there for 5 mins setting my phone when the low battrey flashed up ,the car was still hot from travelling the 400 mile there so should have been fully charged grrrr ,anyway i had the battrey tested at 4 places while there and all said battrey was fine ,now ive monitored the battrey in convers whilst driving and it seems to ramp up the 14.7-8v and stops there a while then drops to 12.4v then back up not sure if this is some sort of special charge system on the ford as today at work i checked someones 13 plate mondeo and his also shows low battrey and has 12v at standing without engine running .Could anyone conferm it this is normal at all
