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:

    I was told by the dealership that my OEM battery on my 2011 Camaro needed to be replaced soon since the car turned 5 years so we replaced it with the one which is supposed to be a awesome battery and it held a charge for one night and has been dropping every since. Taking the battery back tonight and getting another one. I should have looked at the date on the battery before purchasing it. At least I'm hoping that is the reason this battery isn't charging and losing voltage. I know my Alternator is good. Right now I wish I kept my original battery, it was doing better then this one is.

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

      Purchased this battery two years ago for my truck. Recently when we had harsh cold day. The battery went completely dead. I took the battery out of the vehicle and tried charging it overnight. The next morning it was very weak.. Could not turn the engine over. Took the battery to Advance. They would first wanted to charge the battery on their charger so they could "test" the battery. After their first attempt of charging and testing. The battery was still dead. So they said they had to charge the battery again. By this time 20 mins had gone by in the store. I told them I did not have time for them to learn how a dead battery works. The clerk got a manager for the situation. The manger hid in the back and had the clerk explain they would only return the battery one time. If this happens again, the warranty is void. So needless to say they lost a customer and money.. Been going there for years, will not return business to a place that won't stand behind it's product.

      Installed this battery in my 00 NewBeetle diesel after a 1yr 11month old factory VW Enertec died. I do not have a battery box so I wanted the larges battery possible. This is the best battery. I have 190k miles and have extended glow plug cycle. This gives me ample power and fast start even in cold weather. Great price on a great battery. Don't settle for a group 48 in your tdi when you can go to a 94RH7!

            Purchased in January 2015 and by the beginning of October my Jeep wouldn't start if left over night. Used two different charges to charge it and if left over night it would lose charge. Took it into the store since there is a 3 year free replacement warranty. They put an electronic tester on it that said the battery was good and would not honor the warranty. I purchased a new battery from another retailer and magically the Jeep starts again in the morning again.

                      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?
