During a deep cold snap here in Wisconsin, I discovered that my 6 year old original battery was getting weak in my 2007 Silverado. I started shopping online at verious auto part houses, and made several phone calls to find a new battery. I soon discovered that Advance Auto Parts offered a more powerful replacement battery at a significantly lower price. So I took advantage of even more savings by ordering the battery online. One hour later I arrived at my closest Advance Auto Parts store, waited inside the warm store while my new battery was installed for free. Installing a battery in an 07 and newer Silverado requires a little more effort than other vehicles. But it was no problem for them. I am very happy with my purchase.

When I exposed the origional battery, which is in the trunk I found it was rated over 900CCA. The subject battery is only rated 720CCA and is much shorter than the origional. It seems to be working OK now but I am concerned about how it will do this winter and how long it will last. Next time I will drive the 40 miles to the BMW dealer and get the correct battery. Also the people at the store were reluctant to install the battery and one guy commented "I don't know anything about batteries". Finally one of their Tec's who was off the clock installed the battery for me which I appreciated as my old battery completely died in front of the store so I was stuck with no tools. Altogether, it was not a pleasent experience.

      Purchased this replacement battery online at Advasnced Auto and when I arrived at the store to pick it up I was laughed at and told it was actually pourchased at Car Quest across the street. I went to Car Quest and picked it up. Good thing they were open and directly across the street. I even got an email from Advance Auto Parts saying the battery was ready to be picked up at the store....What happened here?

                  My battery was in an '11 Chevy Silverado and was 5 years old this year so when the truck would not start after a 2 week vacation I was not surprised. The Advance closest to me had this battery in stock and I was able to use multiple online coupons and speedperks rewards making it very affordable. When I arrived they installed the new battery in less than 10minutes for me and did a very good job and took the old one then and there. Truck has been running and starting fine so far but it is too early to tell how it will last in the long run.

                      Good question, Joe! Yes, we do offer free installation of batteries on most automotive vehicles, at most locations, unless prohibited by law. Free installation with purchase only. Free installation of batteries may not be available at all stores due to select local community ordinances. I suggest you to contact the nearest store with your year, make, model and engine specification of your vehicle and they would be in a better position to let you know if they offer free battery installation.

                      A:

                      Hi Chadwick, glad to assist you! The battery Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period that is printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery is found defective after the Free Replacement Period but prior to the end of the warranty period, a prorated credit will be issued that can be applied toward the purchase of a new battery. The prorated credit will be determined by dividing the original 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 or use of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty.

                      I'm happy to help, Saph! This Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 48H6) is replaced under warranty if there are defects in workmanship or material of the battery that have caused the failure. Intentional misuse, such as using the battery in a marine environment or for off-road or racing purposes. Deep discharge of a battery of this type could also cause premature failure. The warranty does not start over when the battery is replaced. You will have the remaining warranty or an additional 90 days, whichever is longer.

                      To my knowledge, there have been no recalls of this or any battery sold by Advance Auto Parts. Any product that we sell or have sold that may have a recall will be posted here: http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/o/recalls

They do require venting and must remain upright. One of our Platinum, such as Part No. H6-AGM batteries may be a better option for your application as they are able to be mounted in any direction and will not leak.
