I use this battery in my '98 Ford Expedition 4x4 4.6L Vin W and the old battery I replaced just today lasted 5yrs...Truck batteries aren't cheap, but the excellent service I get and free installation more than makes up for that....I will not use any other battery in this Truck!

I have purchased TWO of these "GOLD" Batteries. The FIRST one went into my 1997 Ford F-250 4X4 460 CID. IT, only lasted not quite ONE YEAR. I have worked with lead acid Batteries for 45+ years, so I checked the specific gravity on all the cells when this one rolled over on it's back, (it went T.U. at least 12 times, and had to be charged just to start the truck) and the #2 cell (from Neg term) was reading "water only". The alternator always puts out 14.6 VDC, and the "ALL OFF" current drain is only 3.5 MICROAMPS. So this Battery went back to the Advance Auto Parts store where I bought it, and "explained" to the sales KID, WHY it was BAD. It was obvious, that he didn't have a CLUE, as to what I was talking about with "Specific Gravity", so he "Tested" it with an Electronic Tester, which of course told him it was O.K. !! There was NO educating him about batteries, so he would NOT replace it for me. Of course the Manager was not there at the time, so I found out WHEN he was supposed to be there (next day) and I went back and talked to him. He was very nice, and swapped it right away. So I got a NEW identical battery put in. Well, the new one was built in May, 2010, and now IT keeps going DEAD!! But, I am tired of battery swapping, so I gave up on this "THING". I live in Lakewood CO, and I like a battery that will turn my crank at ANY temperature, even if the headlights were left on for 1 or 2 hours, (which actually happened to my wife in our 1995 Aerostar, with an Autocraft Titanium battery in it). The original MOTORCRAFT factory battery that came in my truck, lasted ELEVEN YEARS with never a failure!!! So I went to a FORD dealer and had a new 850 CCA battery put in. NO MORE AUTOCRAFT BATTERIES FOR ME. Sorry, but some of the CHILDREN working there, have NO knowledge of what they sell. But, that is becoming common everywhere these days, isn't it !!

Replacement for identical battery that lasted over 4 years

Comments about AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 65, 850 CCA:

The previous battery had a 3 year warranty just like this new one. Fortunately the old one lasted over FOUR (4) years! I'm not sure it would have lasted much longer with winter weather arriving.

  • Q:

    If I purchase a new battery online,and I am returning my core which is a pro-rated 84 month warrantied Autocraft, can they just credit my account back the warrantied amount when I go to the store to pick it up?
    Asked on 2/3/2016 by Lincoln

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi Lincoln, happy to help you! Your existing Autocraft battery must be returned to the Advance Auto Parts store with the original receipt and the Store Manager will be in a better position to approve the pro-rated warranty upon physical inspection. Once the warranty has been approved, the Store Manager will help you with the replacement order and credit procedure.

  • Q:

    I returned my battery due to its not holding a charge. I did have my receipt, and my customer information was also in your system. I am incurring similar problem now w/the battery that you gave me to replace the other problematic one with. I took it back to the store w/receipt also, but I was told that it was tested and the testing indicated that the battery was alright. Why isn't it powered up enough to be able to start my van, then? You should be including manufacturer info and jump starting/charging recommendations for your female customers, and others who haven't a clue about auto mechanics. Why won't you replace my battery? Is it because you have already swapped it out once? Ms. Rosetta E. McCoy

      Hi Donald, I am happy to help! I would advice that you visit the mechanic for further assistance. Your vehicle sounds like the starter is dragging the battery down. Recommended taking the starter to get checked out at Advance for a free check.

  • Q:

    I have bought several deep cell marine autocraft batteries. These are going to be used in a solar panel project of mine. My question is this; after I wire all of these batteries that I bought from you guys and have them connected to my solar panels, can I store them inside my home? My two main rooms are both connected upstairs of the house with open closets and no dividers. When the solar panels are charging the batteries will they put off harmful gases?

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello Joe! Happy to assist! From what we researched we found that deep cycle batteries will give off some harmful gasses. In your situation we suggest having some kind of fan/vent set up to get those gasses out of that room.
