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.

                        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.

                        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.

                      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.

Both come with a rating of 70 Amp hours and are compatible for your 2011 Jetta.
