I had the battery installed at your store and afterwards I've been having problems with my car. The check engine light stays on and other dash lights are flashing.
I took it back to the store the other day and I spoke with the manager who did run a diagnostic test and then proceeded to tell me that the battery installation had nothing to do with the problem.
I find that hard to believe because there weren't any issues with the dash lights being on prior to the battery being changed.
The bottom line is although I am a repeat customer at your store, I wouldn't
purchase another battery from you.

      Installed this as a replacement in our 2011 Subaru Legacy after the factory one went out. It's a bit smaller than the one that I replaced. The associate at the store helped me put it in - which was great since it was pretty cold and windy outside. :)

        Replaced a 10yr old battery, my, the NEW batteries are lighter and somewhat smaller! Had to boost the height 3/4", but fits otherwise. Was able to use a code discount, something I always appreciate by shopping on-line with AAP!

                  Battery I originally bought online wasn't an exact replacement for my car. Website said it was. It would have fit with the included riser. But, I wanted same size as OEM. Manager at Advance Auto Parts was great and switched out battery I purchased with one that was exact fit. He also gave me the same discount I got online. Ended up getting the gold series in a 25 size instead of the 26. I've always gotten good service from AZ.
