Sorry to hear about your Ford Escape Hybrid! Since the battery life of an Escape hybrid is only about eight years, a replacement might be in order. It’s expensive though—expect to pay around $5,000 including parts and labor to replace the battery.
However, you can certainly cut your costs by shopping around. A used or refurbished battery can reduce your bill by roughly $2,000, but these often come with no guarantees or warranties. Shop at your own risk in this case.
You can also choose who installs the battery. Dealerships will be more expensive, but you can have peace of mind knowing that it’s going to be done correctly.
Again, you can go elsewhere but do so at your own risk. Also, make sure that having a repair shop install the battery doesn’t void the warranty.
