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.

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

There is not much you can say about a car battery until you've had it for a while. So the fact that I have a two year old Autocraft Gold in one of my other cars is testament to the reason I bought this one. I have had no complaints at all. Even when I left the lights on a the airport, a simple jump and the battery took the re-charge just fine and has performed flawlessly ever since. The price was competitive and the battery is indeed an exact fit. That is very important on the 2015 Ford Escape. The engineers placed the battery under the windshield so that you have to remove the entire air cleaner assembly and all the duct work to get to it. What a PITA. That's another reason for choosing a brand I've had success with. I don't want to have to do that again any time soon.

                This is the second of these batteries I have purchased at Advance Auto Parts. The previous one lasted 4 1/2 years. The first time it would not start the car, I ordered a replacement online for pickup at the store. Probably I could have charged it and nursed it along for another year, but I'm satisfied with 4.5 years of service from that battery. I was still clean and new looking when replaced. The new battery, which was installed by the guy at the Advance Auto Parts store, started the car on the first try. I assume it will give me another 4+ years of service.

                  • 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).

                      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 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.
