I found a number imprinted into the top of the batteries that includes the date. The three batteries that blew all were manufactured on 10/03/2006, so they were all 3 years old! The others were 2 years old. The ZX40S manual itself says the batteries should be replaced if older than 24 months. I was told they were putting new batteries in the car when I bought them, so clearly somebody didn't do what they were supposed to.

Anyway I escalated the issue to upper management, and they responded that they are going to send me new batteries, so hopefully this is resolved. These batteries were simply very old, and should have been replaced in processing. Thanks for all the info and I will keep you informed of my progress!
