A battery replacement at Prime Ford takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the model and year of your Ford car, truck, or SUV. During a battery replacement appointment, we replace the battery and case and recycle the old battery for you. If you’re getting other maintenance done that day, including an oil change or tire rotation, you can expect the appointment to last longer.

If you have any questions about batteries, battery replacements, or other automotive parts, don’t hesitate to contact the Prime Ford team. We want to help our clients drive safely around Saco, Brunswick, Portland, South Portland, and beyond. When you’re ready for a new battery, be sure to schedule service online.

Battery Maintenance

Now that you have a new battery for your Ford car, truck, or SUV, it’s time to care for it. Luckily, battery maintenance is fairly straightforward. Your new Ford battery will last anywhere from three to five years. Here are some simple tips to help your battery last closer to five years, rather than three:

  • If you have any lights or media that are not automatic, be sure to turn them off when you turn of your vehicle.
  • Avoid playing music or using lights while your car is idling. If you’re at a red light or in stop-and-go traffic, your battery should be fine. However, if it’s sitting in your driveway playing music, the battery can die quickly.
  • Be sure to have your battery checked with every oil change appointment.
  • Lastly, when you’re getting gas or checking under the hood, simply take a flashlight and check out your battery and its case for any erosion or grime.

Just follow these few simple tips to get the most out of your new battery for your Ford F-150, Explorer, or Escape. No matter where life takes you, know that your service mechanics at Prime Ford in Saco are here for you every step of the way!
