Perfect. Do not pay more for a battery

    This is a fine battery for the price. I was looking for a low cost battery and found it by using the online ordering with 15% off. I ordered it online and drove to the store to pick it up. They had it ready for me when I showed up.

      Comments about AutoCraft Automotive Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA:

      Needed a replacement battery for my 2010 with 80k miles. Since I plan on trading this in soon, I opted not to take on the expense of the longer-lasting batteries, and I expect this will serve my needs just fine. No trouble starting, but I reside in a warm weather state so I cannot speak for cold weather starts.

                      A:

                      With reference to your inquiry on the Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA - part# 26R-2, the average life span of a battery is about four to five years after that you are on borrowed time. However, this depends on the climate and weather conditions you are living at. If you live in a climate that has severe hot or cold temperatures, it shortens the life span of your battery. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                      A:

                      Yes, this Economy Battery, Group Size 26R, 540 CCA part# 26R-2 has 1 year free replacement warranty. Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery becomes defective after the Free Replacement Period and prior to the end of the warranty period, the warranty benefit will be prorated and can either be credited toward the purchase of a new battery or refunded at our option. The proration amount shall be determined by dividing the purchase price by the number of months of the warranty period, then multiplying the result by the months remaining in the warranty period. Partial months are rounded to the nearest whole month. Installation of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                      They are correct about different installation processes. I would suggest visiting a local Advance Auto Parts location and verifying if they would be able to install the battery for your vehicle.
