Bought this battery 8 mo,s ago, As soon as the weather got cold 35 degrees or cooler battery failed to turn the starter over on 2002 escape. I checked to see if any lights or items were left on to discharge the battery none present I charged the battery and the same problem happened the next day. I charged the battery again and placed it in My 09 jeep liberty and drove around. The next morning jeep would not start, But the escape would with the jeep battery, I took the battery back and was told it was in good condition and refused a replacement. Short story used it for a core exchange at a competitors store. No more advance parts for Me.

      Service was good but the Associate that installed the battery should get some more training. while he was trying to remove my battery from the car he touched is wrench on the positive terminal and part of the car and sparks flew everywhere. I did talk to the manager and he gave me his card in case some problems come from that.

                      • Q:

                        Does this battery have enough cold cranks for the Atlanta area. Is there another battery you recommend with more cold cranks for the 2011 MKZ? Do not want to get stuck when the temperature drops below 30 degrees (been there, done that).

                          I'm happy to help, John! This Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 96R-3) is considered maintenance free because under normal operating conditions you will not need to add any distilled water. A battery exposed to severe overcharged conditions will gas and use water, resulting in premature battery failure. In this case you then have the ability to add distilled water by removing the caps.

Both the Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 96R-3) and Autocraft Silver Battery (Part No. 40R-1) will meet the requirements of your 2006 Ford Mustang GT 4.6L V8. Both batteries contain the PowerFrame grid and will provide reliable service. The main differences will be the warranty, reserve capacity and dimensions.
