Can anyone tell me how long I can expect my 2011 Ford Fusion's Hybrid Battery to last?
I have 130,000+ miles on my car and it still drives incredibly well. I'm averaging 34.4 mi/gallon, getting 50,000+ miles out of Continental Purecontact 225/50 17 98V tires rotated every 6-8,000 mi.. Best tires I've ever used!
The brakes never seem to need to be replaced and this has been the least expensive car I have ever owned to maintain.
Anyhow,I really like the car, but I wonder if I should sell it before it has no perceived value due to an old battery near replacement. It is now 7 years old, I might get $6-7.5K out of selling it now.
However, if through your help and stories I hear these cars go until 200-250K without needing battery replacement, then I would probably drive this car until it kicks the can! I like it that much!
Plus, the price of gas is creeping back up! $$$
