I can confirm that my 2013 also got a remanufactured 23 kW battery after I got the wrench sign. It was covered under battery 8 year warranty. The car was at the dealer for roughly two weeks, and they told me that the problem was a coolant leak. The dealer said that they have no say in the matter, and it's totally up to Ford as to which battery they ship as a replacement. The person checking out showed my the invoice that the battery cost $11,000.
However, the replaced battery only has 16 kW capacity. I can go up to 60-64 miles, as compared to the previous one, where I would get 70-75 in similar temp and driving conditions. Should I talk to Ford customer service?
I am also worried what happens after warranty is over. Does any one know why the coolant leak problem happens and if we can take any precautions to avoid that.
As of today I am so glad to have my car back
I missed it!
