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!

          Car cranks and not enough power to turn over, jumps started and head over to Advance Auto, tested and states it was good, not a load test though. Purchased 10/2014. 3 Year warranty is useless won't honor it "cause it's good" even though I was stranded a few times. Purchased another battery cranks with not problem. Roll the dice with this battery.

          Ordered the battery online and picked it up in the store the same day .It was very convenient. I dropped off my old battery for a 20 dollar core refund, which I thought was nice. The installation went seamlessly. The battery performs as well as I could imagine. It comes with a 3 year warranty. An advance auto parts sales associate recommended that I drive my car around for a little bit after I install the new battery to get it going. I will definitely come back to advance for any other car parts I need in the near future

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

          This battery is compact, but my Honda Accord's OEM hold-downs fit perfectly. The battery posts are in the right position to reach their respective battery cables as installed. Minimal corrosion collected on the posts and terminal clamps after three years of service. No felt washers or other preventitives were used.

          However, there is no clear answer as to the warranty period for this battery. The only consensus is that a battery that fails within three years will be replaced for free. Since my battery was just under four years old, I asked for prorata credit. The clerk said there is zero credit after three years. I had already paid the total price online, so I installed the battery and checked for more information online after returning home. Again, there is no clear information regarding warranty past three years. Some comments state no credit after three years, but there are references to the battery being a five-year battery.

          I don't buy car batteries and hope that they fail sooner rather than later. If you can find a battery elsewhere with clearly stated warranty policy that covers the life of the battery, buy that one instead.

          Installing battery was efficient, free and well done by the technician. I used their Internet site to purchase the battery, and this saved time and money when it was installed at the local Advance Auto store. The service of checking the old battery and charging system and then a replacement with a new battery was very convenient! This was a good experience!

                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.

                Hi Warrbatt, 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.

              • A:

                I called an Advance Auto store and was told this particular AutoCraft Gold battery, if purchased today, no longer has a prorated warranty. The warranty is simply a 3 year free replacement. About 18 months ago, the company discontinued the prorated warranty on new purchases. If you purchased a battery prior to that, the prorated warranty would still apply. Yes, your sales receipt does indeed have all of the information you need concerning the warranty, but many of us purchase a battery wanting to know what the warranty is prior to purchase. Hope this helps. Also, if you need to use the warranty for the free replacement, keep in mind, the replacement battery does not begin a new 3 year replacement period.
