Got a letter from Ford for Customer Satisfaction Program 15B04.  Stating that it was possible for my CMax to become discharged overnight after the vehicle was parked for a short period of time.  Which results in a no-start condition.  Anyone else get this? and had it done?  Says Ford will check the 12v battery an replace if necessary.  I've never had a single problem with a dead battery since purchase in September of 2012, don't want to start now if they change out my battery.  I have experienced several occasions when I get in Maxus in the morning and the battery indicator is completely drained and the ICE immediately turns on after pushing the start buton.  Not sure if that is what Ford is reffering to?

If your battery has been NEARLY dead "several occasions when I get in Maxus in the morning and the battery indicator is completely drained", then it has been damaged.
If Ford wants to replace your 3 year old battery let them.

This recall doesn't have anything to do with the HVB. The HVB SOC can change when the car is off due to changes in HVB temperature.
