Was a good powerful upgrade to my factory battery. The AdvanceAuto staff installed as well, so that was very nice. Battery has good terminal covers and sturdy built-in handles. It was a good fit for my 2008 Land Rover LR2. Has started every time since install with no hesitation. Im' very happy with it. Was especially attractive with the $50 off coupon I found online. The reviews on this battery were good enough for my to pull the trigger and buy this one. The warranty was comprehensive and explained to me very well, so I feel confident that if I have a problem, Advance will take care of me. Cheers!

If I could give the battery 1 star, and the customer service 5 stars, I would.

First, the battery - My OEM battery died after 5 years and 100,000 miles. I replaced it with one of these AutoCraft ones because the OEM battery cost about 50% more, and these at least had decent reviews. It worked great for 6 months. 2 weeks ago, I went out to leave work, and it was dead. Got a jump, went home, charged it up for a few hours on a charger, dead again. Took it to the garage because...surely it can't be the battery. Local shop said there was drain from my electrical system. If it wasn't the battery, it was likely ECU problem. Took it to the dealer. Dealer tested for 2 days and ultimately said, "It's gotta be the battery." I fought saying the battery was brand new, but they were insistant. So...after 6 months of not even every day driving, I went back to see about having it replaced.

Now for the good part...The local guys at AdvanceAuto took a look at my battery, ran a diagnostic, and sure enough, the battery had issues. They replaced it on the spot with no issue or charge. Took 20 minutes to take the old one out and get me a new one installed. Good guys.

So it cost me $60 for the first garage visit, $139 for the dealer visit, and $0 to have the battery replaced. Needless to say I'd have been better off with an OEM battery in the long run! I'm very disappointed that this battery died after 6 months. I'm curious to see if my replacement lasts longer. My next battery won't be an AutoCraft, but I think the guys at AdvanceAuto get a thumbs up for service.

Comments about AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 94R, 790 CCA:

Ordered on line and saved money plus got great service from store from employee who went out of the way to accommodate my arrival before store closed. Sadly manager stepped in closed out registers and insisted that I needed to come back next morning.
I did that but had no car overnight and had to pay for Uber rides a second time. Bad manager!
Great employee.

        There is not much you can say about a battery. It has a 3 year replacement warranty and this is the second one I purchased at this location. My truck takes 2 batteries. I replaced one last year and this one. The guys at the store did the install and I ordered on line and paid with pay pal. Simple enough. Thanks

          I have always had good luck with these batteries. I installed my first one 5 years ago in my Dodge Intrepid. It is still going strong. I also installed one last year in my Infinity. Works great. Now I purchased one for my Chrysler 300. The only problem I had was with the free install. As the store employee in Franklin, NJ was preparing to install the battery, the store manager decided her employee could not do the install. The store manager said it would take a half an hour to install the battery, which makes free installation not an option. I told her the battery is in the trunk next to the spare tire, right out in the open. She told me "free has it's limits". So she lent me their tool cart to do it myself in their parking lot. It took me exactly 6 minutes from start to finish, and that's because I had to search through their tools to find the right size wrench and socket. The store manager's attitude was less than tolerable. I'll go somewhere else to buy my battery next time. Plenty of places install batteries for free. Some supply a printable coupon on their sites to get the battery installed for free, like Pep Boys.

                • Q:

                  Can we confirm this 790 CCA battery is in fact 80 Ah? You reference it multiple times as a 730 CCA battery, but it is clearly 790 CCA. Is it rated at 80 Ah?

                    I'm glad to assist, BMeyer! This Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 94RH7) has an estimated amp hour rating of 71. A better indication of the capacity of this battery is the reserve capacity, which is 130 minutes.

                • Q:

                  Will this battery work in my 2008 BMW 328xi? My current battery reads: 12V 90Ah 720A 160RC 720CCA
                  I believe it is not the newer AGM type.

                  I've heard that if I get a battery with a different Ah capacity the car needs to be reprogrammed to match. What is the capacity of this battery? Is there one that matches the 90Ah of my current one perfectly?

                    Yes, the AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 94R, 730 CCA - Part No. 94RH7 will fit your 2008 BMW 328xi. However this battery comes with a lesser amp hour of 80 AH. If you want a higher AH battery I would recommend the AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 49, 760 CCA - Part No. 49H8 which comes with 95 AH. Once you have replaced the battery you may need to check with the dealer to get the car programmed for it.

                  I just looked at this battery at my local store. It does look like it has a vent hole on both the negative and positive side that would accommodate my 2002 BMW 325CI. Earlier posts here state that there is no vent. Have the specs changed ? Unfortunately the rep at the store was unable to help me.
