Bought this to replace OEM battery on '01 Hyundai Elantra (yes, that original battery actually lasted this long, driven just over 60,000 miles!--much better than the original Michelin tires they placed on it, which were horrible and quickly went). The 700 stated CCA on this battery is even higher than their Gold Battery--which I'd initially decided to spring the extra money for due to the extra warranty, until asking them about this and finding they recommended this less expensive battery due to the higher CCA. I appreciated that honesty even though it meant a lesser sale for them. Although I normally have all work done at my dealer, they wanted [$] total to have a new battery installed--and that battery only had a 1-year full replacement warranty and 4-year prorated replacement warranty compared to the 2- and 6-year warranties on this battery (3- and 7-year on the Gold). I just came back from AAP now, but it started right up after replacement, and did the same after several test shut-offs and restarts. So so far so good! I feel I got an excellent deal and an excellent price!

First I have to say my overall experience at advance was very positive. I ordered the oem battery for my Santa Fe online, group size 124r. When Booker tried to install the battery, it was too short and the positive terminal would not attach. He took it inside and matched it to a group size 24f. Everything worked perfectly . He credited my online transaction and gave me a price match for the more expensive group 24f battery. This is a maintenance free battery even though it has caps on it for venting. Every place I checked online has the group size 124r as the replacement for my 2007 Santa Fe so advance was not at fault, but they did make things right. Hope this will save someone else some time when they get their replacement battery for the Santa Fe. I do recommend using Advanced Auto Parts because of the great service I got.

Best Deal I could find

Pros

  • Ease Of Install
  • Free Install
  • Large Store Network
  • Online Coupons
  • Price

Cons

  • 2 Year Warrenty

Best Uses

    Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 124R, 700 CCA:

    This was a very simple and easy online transaction. I reviewed multiple batteries online and this was the best deal available when combined with an online coupon.

    I like the fact that there are stores in all of the areas that I travel too.

    The only downside was that this battery only has a two year free replacement while several of the others offer a three year free battery replacement if the battery fails. It is pro rated after the initial two years.

    Since Advance Auto offers free battery installation I simply jump started the car and drove to my local store. They quickly installed the battery and I was on my way.

        Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 124R, 700 CCA:

        I was looking for a one battery with a good price and I found this battery that fit my needs. The battery was exactly the same dimensions and had the exact terminals as the original battery. I was hopping for a longer life battery, but this Silver was the only battery available for the 2012 Hyundai Sonata. Since the price of the battery was so competitive, and I found a great coupon to use, I could not go wrong with the purchase of a 24 month battery. I am very pleased with the purchase made.

        I replaced the original battery in my 2007 KIA sportage. The old battery still worked I just did not trust it would survive the coming winter. I shopped around and Advanced Auto had the best price after using the discount codes. I replaced the battery in the Advanced auto parking lot. Don't expect the employees to volunteer ant assistance. They probably would have helped if I asked.

        • Q:

          So I was recently inside a store and they had this battery listed for $95 with a 1 year warranty. I was told by the person behind the counter that I could buy the battery online and save 30%. Now that I am online I can for some reason only buy the battery with the two year warranty, which makes the price total come out to be $137, the 30% off online is actually more expensive because I see no options for getting the one year warranty while ordering online. I only want the 1 year warranty as I just do not have the money to pay an extra $42 for a second year. Is there a way to get the 1 year warranty on the battery online instead of the 2 year warranty?

            Hi David, good question! With maintenance-free batteries, you do not need to add water. This kind of battery also reduces corrosion in the battery terminal posts. In case of low water, you only need to add water to any cells that are low on water.

          Hi. I'm not sure if this is the right spot, but I'll try. I have a 2002 Elantra with an AutoCraft Silver battery that has a date of Oct, 2007 on it. So far, it seems to be running well, and holding a charge ok, but what is the expected lifespan of the Silver batteries from that timeframe? Thanks!

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            Hi Matt, good question! There is no predetermined life of a battery. So many variables come into play that it really depends on the situation at hand. Typically a battery will last up to 5 to 7 years if maintained properly. The lifespan is dependent on the maintenance of the car and the battery, the age of the car and the age of the battery.
