I order the battery today online. I got to the store the same day and ask about my online order and the free installation. They told they have to take a look at my car to see if they can do it. I got the ok. The person who install my car put a backup battery under my driver seat so the car memory will not be erase when he took out the battery. Once that was done, he proceed to take out the battery. He was very efficient and clean. Once the old battery was out. He then clean my terminal post by using a wire brush. He then put in my new battery in. He then spray on some battery protector on my terminal post. Very professional and more than I expected from my free installation. Give it a 10 out of 10.

Battery Won't Last

Bought one with 2 yr. warranty on 11/30/12. Worked fine until September 2014 when it could not longer reliably crank. Swapped it at no charge on 10/16/14 under warranty....Read complete review

Bought one with 2 yr. warranty on 11/30/12. Worked fine until September 2014 when it could not longer reliably crank. Swapped it at no charge on 10/16/14 under warranty. The brand new replacement battery barely lasted two months before it left me stranded again. Had my car thoroughly checked out thinking there must be a problem with the charging system or with something drawing current when everything was off. The car is fine, the battery failed in test. Tried to exchange again since the second battery was obviously junk. But per AAP policy, the warranty on the new battery is only good until the original warranty expires (which in this case was only six weeks.) I brought a printout of my mechanic's test results showing the battery failed test and tried to negotiate with the store manager, but he said "That test doesn't mean anything to me. I'd have to test it myself, but with the warranty expired, there is nothing I can do anyway." The best he would offer is to buy a new battery at 20% off (which is not a deal, since I can do that on the website right now.) Bottom line: They followed their policy to the letter, even though a brand new battery didn't last 3 months. I took my business elsewhere.

    The item crank on asap without issues. The website has this to fit properly but it's too small for the area where you are supposed to install battery. Item is very strong.

        Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 26R, 575 CCA:

        I bought this battery in February of 2013 and it failed to the point where I couldn't jump it on October 2015, 8 months after the 2 year free replacement period. My car is stock with the stock radio and no car alarm. Advance doesn't offer an extended warranty with these. Most batteries in this price range offer prorated coverage up to 5 years. Most batteries last more than 5 years in moderate weather. For this price, you're better off buying an Interstate battery.

            I installed this battery around 1 year ago. Today the temperature dropped to 3F, and the battery failed to crank over the engine. I popped off the terminals and cleaned them to no avail. This is in a daily driver that sees daily commuter traffic of 20 miles - all highway. When the car sits in the garage above 15F, it's able to turn over.

                                Good question Daisy! A top height adapter would be a plastic square that makes the battery tall enough for the battery hold down clamp to work. It is a spacer that you put under your battery to fit the battery tie down holder. You will need to purchase this adapter separately.

                                Hi Tony, glad to see you back! This battery doesn't have the pro-rated warranty period. However, I would recommend you to call the Warranty department directly at 1-888-286-6772 between the hours of 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday and we would be in a better position to assist you.

                                Great question, George! I wasn't able to locate specific information for your Generac generator without a model number or serial number. To obtain an owners manual for the generator to find out which battery is the proper one for your generator they have a search feature on their website.

                              I would get this battery for a Hybrid Camry. The dealer says the battery is in the trunk and must be "vented" so is your battery a OEM replacement for the Hybrid Camry? My Camry is a 2007. Will this battery "work" as well as the battery the dealer wants to install?

                                With reference to your inquiry on the AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 26R, 575 CCA - Part No. 26R-3 you must have something draining the battery. Applications like clocks/computer system, an onboard compressor that levels your shocks, a direct wired aftermarket stereo etc may draw some low power. A load test from a service station or garage can tell you more about the condition of the battery - an amp gauge or a voltmeter can tell you if there's a load if you place the leads between the battery and one of the cables.
