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.

      This thing is absolute junk. Bought this to put in my 2006 Fusion in 9/2014 which is like new and has 55k miles for no other reason than the original battery was old. I put the original battery on a trickle charger in my garage. All summer long I used the old battery to jump start infrequently used equipment. Since the fall it has sat on the trickle. Meanwhile the new battery has remained in the Fusion. Over the past month the Fusion became increasingly difficult to start. When it did start the charging system was functioning perfectly as I have a voltage monitor on the car. I thought I may have gotten bad gas. Go out to start the car to go to work the other day click click click. I pull the battery terminals, they're perfectly clean. The battery cables are extremely short on the car, I have custom equipment hooked up. It took nearly 2 hours to swap the 10 year old OEM battery in a 20mph wind in a 20 some degree temp because it was so cold. I missed work because of it. Tossed the 10 year old battery in and the car fired right up and cranked just as fast as this ever did. Garbage, absolute garbage, and when I get my warranty replacement they're gonna know my opinion.

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

          The Autocraft battery lasted 7 months. They did replace it, but the second one died in less than two years. Decided to purchase another battery elsewhere, as I did not want to get stranded with a dead battery that soon again and go through the hassle of replacing it this often. The original Ford battery lasted 6 years.

            Purchased in Aug 2011, fit and function was perfect until this morning. Opted to purchase a new batter instead of going after the pro-rated warranty as Advance offered me a nice discount on a new one, I did opt for the silver battery this time around as my care is getting on in years. Ordered everything on line and went to my local store who were more than happy to install the new battery and take care of the core charge on the spot. For quality, support and service I continue to return to my local Advance Auto parts store for all of my car needs.

              I had purchased the battery in my car from Advance a few years ago, and my car wouldn't start. Got it jump started and took it to Advance. They tested the battery and confirmed it was dead. I didn't have my receipt for the battery, so they looked it up. Sure enough, it was still under warranty (3 year warranty for the gold battery) -- by 10 days! Advance honored the warranty with no questions asked, replaced the battery for me, and I was on my way. Excellent experience!

                I purchased this battery 3 years ago while on vacation. It was the first auto store I could find. I was in a bind and the store personnel was great. Unfortunately this battery didn't have the life span that I expected. In the past I always bought Duralast and had great success with them. I thought a battery is a battery wow was I wrong. Definetly would not purchase this product again

                      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).

                        A:

                        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 batteries contain the PowerFrame grid and will provide reliable service. The main differences will be the warranty, reserve capacity and dimensions.
