Hello,

New here, but I belong to other forums.  Was just curious as to whether anyone knows the cost of replacing the battery... the one behind the seat.  Also does anyone know the expected longevity of these batteries and the length of time the big battery is warranteed?  My fusion hybrid is a 2010.

 

Appreciate any info!  Thanks.

The powertrain of a 2010 Fusion Hybrid is warranted for 5 years or 60,000 miles.  I assume that includes the HVB.  The HVB is expected to last for the life of the car.

The hybrid system including the HVB is warranted for 8 years or 100,000 miles or higher in some states. It is not a factor in considering the cost of operation as few have failed and they probably have more longevity than automatic transmissions or engines. The 2010 Owners Guide says they should last the "life of the car". Accelerated testing by the government showed a 2010 FFH HVB battery power declined 8% after 160,000 miles. Battery declines do not affect fuel economy. Don't worry about them. With Toyota Prii, there are 100 times more serviceable used HVBs available from wrecks than fail. The failures have been so few that the repair aftermarket segment has been very slow to develop..

The only bad track record on hybrid batteries that I am aware of deals with the Honda Civic Hybrid as documented here by Consumer Reports:

Do a Google for replacement Fusion Hybrid packs. I found none. I did find 05-09 Escape refurbished packs though.  Simple reason you dont get many hits(aside from keyword search) is that there isn't a big market yet for refurbished Hybrid batteries.  As stated before, you can probably find used batteries from wrecks that are like new, for much less than any company can refurbish them for.  No profit margin in it yet. 

 

There are however some companies cropping up that will service your existing pack(NickelMetalHydride only) for a small fee. They take the pack out, test each cell and perform a reconditioning cycle on each cell to bring it back to near new condition. The 2010-12 FFH does this as needed, but sometimes a cell could become stubborn and not take the reconditioning cycle properly. They may also be able to replace a bad cell for far less than a replacement pack will cost. 

 

It will soon become no different than automatic transmission and engine rebuilders. A few companies will get the golden share of the business and make out well, while others might branch out as a side line to it, but not make anything off of it to be a contender.   With the surge of newer and more choices of Hybrids, now is the time to get into battery refurbishing, but the startup costs wont be recovered for quite sometime until the market is out there, will take a few more years as the miles pile on, but eventually there will be enough Hybrids out there that will need packs refurbished or reconditioned. Especailly on those who drive their cars to 500K or more.

No battery problems or issues, but a couple of comments. I was gone for over 3 weeks, and my car started up just as if I had driven it 1 day ago. I was a little concerned,  but won't be in the future.

When I was in Italy I saw NO Mondeo hybrids, and just a couple (less than 5) Prius. As many know already, almost everything is Diesel powered. I visited only small towns, which may explain the lack of hybrids, since there was a serious lack of parking with electrical access. Most cars stayed on the streets their entire life. Also, few were clean of course. 

I saw but one CMax the entire time.

They just started selling the Mondeo a few weeks ago over there and no Hybrids yet. Interesting side note they aren't selling the 4 door sedan (like ours) except on the Hybrid.
Only the 5 door and station wagon are being sold.

I just saw a review blasting the Mondeo Hybrid on my Google News feed. The reviewer stated than real world MPG is worse than the diesel Mondeo.

If you drive like you drive a regular car no question same is true for diesel. What some reviewers don't seem to realize that I don't need 0-60 results every time I start from a stop.

I would really like to drive one over there on roads I know the FE returns in other cars.

I would like to know the city/highway driving mix of the test. Another factor for the diesel Mondeo is displacement, the US market does not have any 1.6 L diesel option like they do in Europe.

My experience in Italy was that everyone drives crazy, trying to race to the next light before all the scooters fill in the gaps between the lanes, sidewalks, or wherever they can go.  Then the light turns green and its off to the races again.
