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.

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

    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

        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.

            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 !!

                      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.
