Ford Focus: How long should the battery last?

Asked by Cameron Irby

I'm disappointed the battery in my Ford Focus ST lasted only two years. All right, it only cost $120 for a replacement but surely it should have done better. And, when I went to my Ford dealership in Townsville, it took 90 minutes just to handle a five-minute job.

Yours is not the first complaint on this subject, so it seems many modern batteries are now being built to a price.
