I bought this battery for a '97 Mercury Mountaineer with a 5.0L V8 in it and find it solved my problems quickly and easily.
I had previously replaced the battery in this truck with one from a parts wholesaler, supposedly one of their "top of the line". It ended up not being able to hold a charge decently after just one year.
While I haven't had this one a year yet, the performance I get from it already tells me it's a much better battery, especially for the price.
The Mountaineer is my 2nd truck, only used when my primary is being used for something else.
This truck also has a 24/7 remote alarm/starter system on it, something that sucked the previous battery down in just a few days.
I've been able to start the truck, both remotely and with the key, without any difficulty even after two weeks of just sitting. No constant grinding or prayers for the engine to catch. Starts right up as if I'd driven it yesterday or had it on a charger all the time.
Definitely worth the money.
The only "con" I have is the word "economy" running across the top. This is not an "economy" battery but a good, solid, mainline one that does what I want, when I want, without hassles.
Who can ask for more than that?

Only had a month so far but all is good. I was not sure I needed a new battery but took the chance and after the first start, it was clear the new battery was the way to go. The free installation was awesome and they did it without losing power to the engine's computer.

Comments about Economy Battery, Group Size 65, 650 CCA:

I needed to replace the original battery in my 2000 Ford Van. The battery finally gave out after 15 years. Was going to buy the same Motorcraft battery from ford but decided to try this one. And it was cheaper also. Good cranking amps and ratings.
The only problem: It did not have adequate water in the battery. If I hadn't checked it the battery would have lost enough water to be below the plates and ruined the battery in short order.

    3/5/14 Replaced battery in my 2000 Ford Econoline.
    It was indicated on the web-site that this was an exact replacement.
    This battery is 3" wider and I thought it might not fit my application. Actually it did fit well using the original bracket.
    Surprised me !

    My original battery was so dead I had to remove it and bring it in to pick-up this replacement.
    Installation was very easy BUT I'm glad I checked the battery water level. THE WATER WAS ALMOST DOWN TO THE PLATES! Obviously it had NOT been checked at the store.
    If left in this condition, It would eventually RUINED the battery soon as the water level reached below the plates.
    BOO AND BAD MARKS TO ADVANCE FOR NOT CHECKING CONDITION !

      Used this battery to replace existing worn out battery. Did not want to spend a lot on replacement. Advance had the best deal online. Picked up in store next day. We have been having freezing weather and this battery cranked everything up right away. Despite continued sub zero it still keeps cranking. so while it is listed as economy it is doing a superior job for me right now. There really was no downside to this purchase. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a hard working economy battery.

              Price and cranking amps is what I was looking for in a replacement battery. Advance auto parts online was the way to go. They had exact size that replaced my old battery and was in stock at my closest store. Simple to order online and special sale codes on the website as well that I applied to my purchase, that saved me quite a bit of money. I picked up battery the next morning and the sales person had it ready and carried out to my vehicle. This is my second purchase on a battery from Advanced on another vehicle and would not hesitate to do it again

                It's a battery, a rectuangular box with 2 posts. When I hooked up the wires, the truck went vroom. Price is right, product is avaialable, it works and Advance recycles the old one. What more could one ask of a rectangular box with 2 posts? And yes, you can get it in any color you like, so long as it is black. Which by the way is a great color, as it is the color of my shoes, asphalt, computer and many other things. And without this black computer, I could not have ordered the rectangular black box with 2 posts.

                      This Economy Battery, Group Size 65, 650 CCA part# 65-0 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. Installation of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store.
