Had the car three years but it's four years old since manufacturing and the battery was flat by the time i got to the supermarket last week. Hadn't really been running anything apart from a/c to clear screen and to give it a use once in awhile. AA came to give me a charge only to say the battery was fine and so was the alternator and everything else.
Gave me a jump start and off i was. I ended up getting a Bosch S5 anyway just in case it was the battery getting ready to fail. I didn't see any white corrosion on it. But i saw a lot of this gold stuff around it and a little bit of rust on the negative cable that was forming near the end point on the car.
How long has your ford battery lasted?
