The battery (Autocraft Silver) this battery replaced lasted for 10 years. Even at this point it would still crank the car but if it didnt start immediately it was jumper cable time. Very dependable that one was. Ill be happy if this one is 75% as good as the last. Why did I go to Gold instead of staying with the silver? Seems the silver in this model is no longer available? Oh well time will tell!

Purchased online for son's 2000 Civic. Advance employee readily helped with installation. Quick process. Seems to be a good battery. Only $10 more than Silver battery, more CCA and longer warranty...worth the few extra $.

    Comments about AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 51R, 500 CCA:

    Battery lasted 2 years and 7 months before it started being sluggish to start in the morning. I was at AAP returning an item when I had them test it. The battery tested "good" but the CCA was only 300 of the 500 it was suppose to have. Girl put the charger on a quick charger on the store then retested it and the CCAs were still 300. She gave me a free replacement thank hod

          I bought my first Autocraft battery on Oct. 2012. It just now died on me, so I'd say lasted as long as one could expect. Just bought an identical battery (and lucked out seeing a 25% off online coupon from Advance Auto Parts!). Would recommend to anyone

            I read in one of the websites that Autocraft batteries are not recommended for extreme winter conditions, like Chicago. Is that true?

              A:

              Hi Sarav, glad to assist you! Autocraft batteries are good, but these are not recommended for areas with harsh winters, as they tend to do best in warmer climates. These batteries are long lasting and were designed to minimise corrosion. For further assistance, please call us at: 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) or contact our "Live Chat" support and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Hi Jayne, glad to assist you! The battery group size refers to the battery size that will best fit the physical dimensions, terminal locations and type required for your vehicle. The Battery Council International (BCI) assigns numbers and letters for each battery group size. Group size is typically based on your vehicle's make, model and engine type. Although some vehicles may accommodate a battery from more than one group size, it is important that you use a battery approved for use in your vehicle. Consult a replacement guide to find the battery group size that works for your vehicle. Also, make sure your new battery will fit and be held down properly according to the vehicle manufacturer's specifications.

              A:

              Hi Gus, happy to help you! In the Group Size 51R, R means the poles are reversed. Well, I guess it depends on which way you are looking at it. If you have the battery so that the poles are further away from you, I think the positive pole is to the right, and the negative pole is to the left. On the R, it was reversed.

            It says this is a perfect fit for my 2005 Honda Accord LX but my engine size, 2.4L I4 MPI DOHC 16V, is not listed as an option and I'm seeing a VIN number? So will it fit even if my engine isn't specifically listed?

              I'm glad to assist, Sean! The 2008 Nissan Versa S 1.8L L4 with a CVT transmission and CVT indicator in the dashboard the dash does not have any special indications for installation as long as the store has a working memory saver device. If for any reason the memory saver did not retain the information the CVT indicator would need to be reset. Your concern with this installation has been escalated to the appropriate team to assist with resolving this issue.

          • Q:

            What exactly is the warranty on this particular battery as of January 25, 2015? Please don't patronize me with the response you gave a previous person with the "Warranty" blah blah blah. I really want to know how long is the free replacement period and what is the prorated period and the percentages. I realize the warranty becomes effective from the date of purchase, as do all warranties on batteries. Thank you.
