I have a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid Titanium and I am a Realtor that travels the Houston area and on many days I can drive 300 miles. I am now at 183,000 miles and have had no problems and in fact the Dealership says my brakes are half worn. I use the Adaptive Cruise Control about 75% of the time. Has anyone got this type proformance or more? Does anyone believe I can make it to 300k miles with the same batteries?Thanks

I didn't know they had ACC in 2014, does that include lane control, or just distance to the car in front of you control?  Are you at 220K or 183K ?

The 2013 models have ACC and lane keeping as separate options.  My car has both of them.

I know they had it in '13 as my brothers FFH had it.  It was adaptive but had no stop/go function.  I had it on my '15 FFH.

???  220k, 183k?  Whatever.

 

The batteries will not last forever, but they also will not completely die all of a sudden.  The batteries in hybrid cars are managed very, very conservatively.  They tend to last a lot longer than the engineers expected.

 

Not an expert by any means, but I have never heard of a hybrid with a dead batter pack.  From any manufacturer.  And a dead battery pack will not stop the car from moving - you will still have the combustion engine.

 

Relax, don't worry, enjoy your car.

You still have the combustion engine but no way to start it.  The engine is started by the high voltage battery spinning one of the electric motors.

A hybrid does not have a starter motor or an alternator.

Sure.  Rhetorically you are correct.

 

Not aware of any examples of that in the wild.  Bricked hybrids due to HVB failure is a unicorn.

 

I still maintain that the OP should relax, not worry, enjoy his car.
