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.

    Order online and pick up at the store. Great prices!
    The "Gang" all went to Disney the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and my nephew's battery was dead.
    While they were gone I got a new one from ADVANCE AUTO and changed it out.
    I had more fun test driving his Mustang than any of the rides at Disneyworld !!

            The longevity is yet to be seen by me, the only reason for a 4 star is aformentioned time to test it out, and the fact its a smaller battery.. Otherwise seems to be fine.

              Exact size as OEM for an absolutely perfect fit. Rated capacity is higher which is a nice plus.

              The only thing I gave up is the cats eye which tells you if your electrolyte is low.

              The Ford OEM battery lasted 5 years. Hoping to get 5 years of service from this replacement.

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

                  Advance Auto installed this battery in my 2007 Ford Focus in early October of 2011 when I noticed cranking issues and had noticeable trouble starting the car on a Sunday afternoon. I've owned my Focus since July of 2006 and was surprised to get five years out of a factory battery.

                  I had the Focus in for routine servicing with Ford and they found the battery to be cranking at less than 50% of its rated capacity. This was at the three year and two month mark so I had no warranty. There is no prorating so I was out of luck there but the store manager gave me a discount off the new battery because it was so close to the warranty end and we could not read the warranty terms from my original 3+ year sales receipt as the ink had faded. That is nice customer service.

                  I do not have a garage so the car sits out side in all sorts of weather. This is, though, the shortest life that I've ever had in an aftermarket car battery. Aftermarket batteries lasted more than three years, usually four at the least. I don't know if I had just a bad round of stock or what. Since I have a second new one, we shall see what happens! If this new battery goes in three years I will not purchase a new one of the same to replace it.

                  I do have to say that the price is reasonable but probably low. It will do the job if you're on a budget and need to get running again.

                      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.
