As long as they are handling it under the warranty. Cars today place a tremendous load on the battery, and troubleshooting a battery drain is very difficult.

Ford lead acid batteries seem to have high failure rates with the newer car's with a lot of electronics. Even though I am under warranty I could not afford to have the car fail randomly so I upgraded to an AGM style battery. Also if you are going to have the car sit for more than a few days its a good idea to keep it on a smart charger.
