Bought this to replace OEM battery on '01 Hyundai Elantra (yes, that original battery actually lasted this long, driven just over 60,000 miles!--much better than the original Michelin tires they placed on it, which were horrible and quickly went). The 700 stated CCA on this battery is even higher than their Gold Battery--which I'd initially decided to spring the extra money for due to the extra warranty, until asking them about this and finding they recommended this less expensive battery due to the higher CCA. I appreciated that honesty even though it meant a lesser sale for them. Although I normally have all work done at my dealer, they wanted [$] total to have a new battery installed--and that battery only had a 1-year full replacement warranty and 4-year prorated replacement warranty compared to the 2- and 6-year warranties on this battery (3- and 7-year on the Gold). I just came back from AAP now, but it started right up after replacement, and did the same after several test shut-offs and restarts. So so far so good! I feel I got an excellent deal and an excellent price!

The description says "Maintenance Free". This battery has the removable vented caps & water will evaporate. You will have to maintain the water level. This is not a sealed battery and I don't know why they call it "Maintenance Free". I guess it means you do the maintenance & therefore it's free.

                      Went online and got a coupon code for this battery. Went to my favorite Advanced location and received even a better discount. That's not the best thing. The best thing is the service. Whomever is your customer service rep will test out your charging system, then install the battery. The rep had to use a liquid wrench to get the bottom nut loosened and that was most appreciated that he did that to install my battery. Since this was for my in-laws car, the entire transaction was seamless and the battery is great. They do not drive much, and this battery with it's 700 CCA is perfect to maintain a solid charge through the hot summer, and I'm sure the below 32 degree winter temperatures that will be coming soon enough.

                          Hi David, good question! With maintenance-free batteries, you do not need to add water. This kind of battery also reduces corrosion in the battery terminal posts. In case of low water, you only need to add water to any cells that are low on water.

                        Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right spot, but I'll try. I have a 2002 Elantra with an AutoCraft Silver battery that has a date of Oct, 2007 on it. So far, it seems to be running well, and holding a charge ok, but what is the expected lifespan of the Silver batteries from that timeframe? Thanks!

                          Hi Matt, good question! There is no predetermined life of a battery. So many variables come into play that it really depends on the situation at hand. Typically a battery will last up to 5 to 7 years if maintained properly. The lifespan is dependent on the maintenance of the car and the battery, the age of the car and the age of the battery.

                        Me again: Does the advertised price include sales taxes or these are adding up to the final selling price?
