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.

I bought the battery on-line to get a 20% discount and had it installed in 15 minutes at the store 30 minutes later. The core charge was removed from the bill. Couldn't have gone more smoothly. Hope the battery is as good as the shopping experience.

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

      My battery died about 1/4 mile from the Advance store. Because I was not in their parking lot, they could not replace the battery for me. They did loan me the tools I needed to replace the battery myself. They were very knowledgeable and helpful in making the purchase and replacing the battery.

            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).

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              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.

            I have a 2006 Mustang GT and the 96R-Gold and 40R-Silver batteries are listed. The CCA and the CA are about the same, but surprisingly the 96R is 2" shorter in lenghth. What is the difference between the 96R-Gold and the 40R-Silver, besides the price and warranty?

              I'm happy to help, Rick T.! 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.
