I wanted something with highest CA and CCA for my '03 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS, and although the correct size, I went with higher CA and CCA due to having a very low drain from a top-notch security system on car and with cold winters and very hot summers where I lived, not going with the 'factory recommendations', upgrading to this was affordable and Shawna at Parson's Ave. Store in Columbus, OH knows her stuff, load-testing my system to make sure nothing else was bad. Kudos!

OEM Replacement Mismatch-CCAs

I have recently bought 4 Advance Auto - Autocraft Gold batteries, two Auto and two Marine. All the batteries are functioning fine but the last Automotive battery that just recently purchased for my Chevy Colorado, had less CCAs than the OEM battery. The AutoCraft Gold had 640 CCAs and replaced an AC Delco factory battery with 690 CCAs. The battery specified at Advance should ALWAYS be the same or higher CCAs than the OEM battery CCAs. This is disappointing that Advance would list a battery 50 CCAs lower as a direct replacement. This is the only reason that I deducted 2 stars,other than that, these batteries seem to perform as expected.

        Not only did I have this battery installed in my own vehicle, I was so pleased with both the battery and the installation by Advanced that I had my daughters car done there as well. Buying it on line saved some extra cash as well.

                        Your warranty begins the day you purchase the battery, and expires at the end of the warranty period printed on your original receipt and Order Confirmation email, or when you sell your vehicle, whichever occurs first. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time.

                    • Q:

                      I purchased this battery back on 4/7/09 and the past few days I notice something weird. When I crank it, it starts fine but I notice the lightd are very dim and after 5-10 seconds it's like someone turned on the light switch and everything is bright. I just checked it with a meter and with the key in the ignition it reads 12.3v. As I turn the key it reads 10v, then 12v, then after a few seconds it rises to 14.1v. Could there be a problem with either the battery or the alternator?

                        Sounds like a ground problem to me... Make sure the negative cable is clean and tight..With a reading of 14.1 volt.. the alternator is working properly...If cleaning and tightning the ground doesn't solve your problem.. I would have the battery checked under a load...

                      • A:

                        The first thing i would check is the battery terminal connections. First disconnect them from the batt, and scurb them with a wire brush, and pour some vinager on the terminal posts. Recconnect them and start. If problem still persists then take off your altenator and take it in to nearest Advance Auto Parts Store and have them test the voltage regulator. If voltage regulator is bad you can replace just that , or buy new altinator.
