Is battery covered under warranty?
Had to jump-start the truck and I notice the indicator on the battery is red instead of green. Doesn't seem to hold a charge for very long. The truck is 1.5 years old, with 12,XXX miles. Is the battery covered under the factory bumper-to-bumper 3 year/36,000 mile warranty (or does it have its own independent warranty period, 3 years, etc.)?
I flipped through my warranty documentation and there was no mention of batteries being covered or not covered (sure is a lot in there about tires though), but I want to be informed before I ask the service advisor and accept his word that it's not covered. I would think a battery shouldn't fail within the 3-year warranty period, and if it does, something is wrong with it and it should be replaced.
Or do batteries fall into the same category as brake pads, wiper blades, etc?
