Looking for some help in determining if I should buy an FFE. A local dealership is offering a 2014 FFE w/ 34k miles for $10.9k. It is extremely clean and only had one owner who used in the city for small daily drives. My concern comes into play when considering the age of the car and battery and the fact that the battery is no longer under warranty.
Hence, to all FFE owners who are willing to answer, HOW LONG DID YOUR 2012-2014 FFE BATTERY LAST? How many miles / years did it last? If you have replaced, how much did it cost and why did you replace it? I was quoted by Ford dealership that a new battery for this VIN would be 13k. So at 8 years old I am skeptical. Currently it gets about 63-65 miles per full charge, and was noted during receivable inspection that battery life is approx. 80-85%.
I really like the car, it would be 2nd car for a 13 mile daily commute to work (one way). But skeptical given age and possibility of electrical issues in the future.
Thanks for any time and effort put into your reply!
