One response to “Ford S-Max I (2006-2015) – batteries”

  1. Hi, bought a Banner battery today from a shop as old battery was completely flat. To my surprise the shop has given me a 65Ah battery while the flat one is a 75Ah. I did provide my registration details and this was recommended by the staff in the shop. I drive a 65 plate Ford S Max 2.0 Tdci Titanium Sport. I thought a large car such as a Ford S Max should have at least a 75Ah battery. Please advise what is better. Many thanks Neil (a budding car battery enthusiast)
