I am very impressed with the online ordering system. I was able to find the part I needed and place the order easily. I used the online chat to make sure that the battery would fit the vehicle I am going to use it in. I ordered the part, printed the receipt and by the time I got to the store, it was there.

I was told that my new battery (just months out of the factory) should not need a charge. So when the starter wouldn't crank, I focussed troubleshooting on other componets (starter, solenoid, switch, cables, etc.) As a sanity check I put the battery on a charger where it showed minimal draw (the same as a fully charged battery). Since the car in question had not been started in many years, I continued to look at it for the problem. I wasted a lot of time before I stuck a hydrometer in a maintenance free battery to find it was NG. After replacing the bad unit, my second battery appears to be fine. So my reccommendation is to demand that a battery be tested before you leave the store with it.

          The first battery I got was a dud. I took it back they cheeked it the new battery cheeked bad. The clerk cheeked around the city and found other battery's bad also. She finally found one in another city that was good. I made 3 trips , 40 miles each before I got a good battery. Needless to say I was out about $21.00 In gas before I got a good battery.

                      I have had my 54 ford customline for over 10 years and had a 6 volt I bought new from another store a few years ago and it alway crank slow finally it would not hold a charge so I bought one at parts america and am glad I did because it cranks very fast when compared to old one and so far is great and fits my battery tray perfectly.The store parts counter man was very nice at the lititz pike store in Lancaster,PA .I had trouble yesterday starting the engine because of a flooded carburator and the battery just kept cranking like it was never gone to give up.I love it.

                        Is the 6 volt 1-1 battery really a maintenance-free battery? I am replacing a Autocraft group 1 battery that looks just like it, which I had to add water to it sometimes. Unless something has changed, that sure isn't a maintenance free battery. It was a good five years old.

I know that isn't that much of a difference - but it should be the exact same answer. Different answers on the same question from AAP person does nothing but confuse the customer. And we all know when a customer has doubt - they don't purchase.

                          Unfortunately I do not have more information on compatibility details of your vehicle. I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance Auto store and our representative would be glad to assist you further.
