I was reduced from using my car and had to use my husbands. I didn't know his needed a new battery and the car had left me stranded at a gas station. I was able to get it going again and shop online for a battery. I found a great deal online with a coupon at Advance. I ordered it right then, and drove out to get it right away. The service there was quick and nice. I was able to order, pick-up, and have it installed in less than 30 mins!!!! Awesome!!!

This was a replacement for same battery bought few yrs ago at Advance Auto. This was one of their top of the line batteries and only lasted 4 yrs. My car is parked inside in the winter so no hard life for the battery. The old battery had an 84 month prorated warranty (new one doesn't)so I expected longer life. We'll see how the new one (same exact battery) holds up. Don't know where the battery is made.
As far as the folks at Advance Auto- thoroughly pleased with them. They went out of their way to make a smooth transaction.

    Comments about AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 96R, 590 CCA:

    Got it as a replacement for the original motorcraft battery in my 2006 ford escape. I only drive ten miles or so once per week so it sits a lot, and although this seems to have more power, I'm not really going to be able to tell until this winter. The old battery would need to be periodicaly jump started last winter, and I really don't expect any problems with this one.

      Battery is working great. My neighbor told my about Advanced Auto, and gave me a promo code. I had gotten a quote from a dealer. I saved $55.00 at Advanced. Same warranty.

                I hate having to replace ANYTHING!!! So it was no different with my battery. However the entire process was pretty seamless.I went online to purchase, got 30% off! Then I go to pickup the merchandise from the store, and they offered free installation. Great!! Now I have a new battery, 5yr warranty. And I am very satisfied

                        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.

                        When you purchase the battery the pro-ration starts. During any time before the pro-rated period ends you can return the battery and get a certain amount of credit towards a new battery. The farther you are into your pro-ration, the less of a credit you will receive on a new batter.
