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.

      After my present battery went dead, I needed a replacement.
      I found AdvanceAutoParts.com and ordered online. I picked it up at the store without any problems. Battery was waiting for me on cart in front of store. I just gave my name and checked out in less than 3 min. Highly recommended company. Above average battery for the money. Very powerful, car starts with first turn of key every time.

          Was a perfect fit to replace OEM battery removed. Had a very useful handle to use for installation since this battery fits in a well in floor. Only criticism is that I had to lengthen the small hose that ventilates the battery because the hole in the plastic cover was farther from the hose exit point than the OEM.

            Replaced an old AC Delco battery that I knew would not survive another cold winter. New battery works well and I noticed a difference right away in the power. AA installed in less that 10 minutes which made the process that much easier.

                  I am not sure what you can say about a battery. It works like a battery, fit the vehicle, and starts the car. Really, time will tell how well it works which is what really matters.
                  The order was placed online after the store closed and it was ready for pickup the next day. The price was competitive with other area auto part stores and other stores that sell batteries. There are only so many battery manufacturers so to me it comes down to price, convenience and service and Advance Auto is close, provides good service and had a fair price.

                          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. For more details, please visit: http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/o/warrantygeneral

                          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

                          Advance Auto Parts team members can address any further concerns that you may have in regards to this battery.

                          I'm happy to help, AS! This Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 48H6) would not be considered a sealed lead acid battery. Our Autocraft automotive batteries are maintenance free. 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.

                        Why is this (Autocraft Gold) rated at 78 Ah with a reserve capacity of 130 minutes at 25A according to Aron and the Autocraft Platinum H6 AGM is rated at 70Ah according to the customer Q&A. I was told that the H6 AGM should be a better battery and cost more by your staff.

                        I just found out that my 2011 Jetta TDI OEM spec comes with 72Ah and the Platinum that I bought is only rated at 70Ah. Please assist.

This AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 48, 730 CCA comes with a rating of 70 Amp hour only and not 78 amp hours. The Autocraft Platinum H6-AGM is an AGM battery which is popular for its better electrical reliability, weight and self discharge compared to the lead acid type. Both come with a rating of 70 Amp hours and are compatible for your 2011 Jetta.

                          Hi Kennedy99, I understand your concern with the wrong information provided to you in the reviews and answers online. The cold cranking amp for this battery is 730 CCA. I will forward this to the appropriate department and have this updated on our website at the earliest.

                      • Q:

                        I recently purchased this battery for my BMW 2000 z3. My old battery had one vent tube, but this battery has two vent holes and it doesn't fit my tube. I picked up the battery from store, is there a kit that can allow me to vent this battery for my vehicle or am I allowed to return for a refund and go to a store that will sell OEM battery replacement?
