I put off (for a LONG) time replacing the battery in my 2000 Toyota 4Runner (V6, 4x4). Once I moved to colder weather (Denver, CO), the old battery went quick. I was at the point where it would just click over and over...

So I went online to Advance Auto and saw that they were running a special on batteries. 25% off of any over $100. GREAT deal!

So I compared the products (other auto parts chains as well) and decided to go with the Silver 26R, 575 CCA by Autocraft.

It was very easy to install. At first I questioned its shorter size but the store clerk showed me the adapter that came with the batter and how it snapped on the bottom. Viola! Literally 1 minute and the battery was installed.

The online order was seamless and the pickup an hour later was great. I give it a 10 out of 10.

Thank you Advance Auto Parts!

This is now the second battery that i buy from you in two weeks, one for my wife's 2008 infiniti and one for my 2010 VW cc. The first battery required me to visit 3 different stores over 2 days to install because everyone said their memory saver was broken. I felt like a ping pong ball being tossed from store to store. Today my battery was equally elusive to install as i visited two stores because the ever popular memory saver was broken again. in addition, the battery recommended by your website was wrong which i had to return and buy another, what a nightmare! I have always bought my batteries from you due mainly to ease of return when and if defective but i cannot fathom running all over town the next time i need one. please get your act and stores together!

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

    Original battery was a 35 but this 26R was also a replacement. I didn't want to pay for the Gold as I didn't think the 4 cyl really needed 600+ CCA so I went with the cheaper silver. The 26R had more CCA than the 35 silver for the same cost. So I had the 26R installed with no regrets. I think I got the best of both worlds..high CCA and affordability.
    I recommend the 26R over the 35. It fit fine and due to its smaller size was easier to handle.

      It has the highest CCA's on the market that I could find online or anywhere else for that matter. This is to replace a 2002 PT Cruiser Limited Battery. Make sure you use the battery insulating jacket or buy a replacement, wether original or after market as stated in the service manual by Chrysler.

              All batteries seemed overprised nowadays. Heck, everything seems overpriced nowadays. The last one of these I bought lasted 3 years, so I guess it will serve your needs.

                  Ordered online and picked up in store in 30 minutes. The employee and I had the battery replaced within 5 minutes and I was back to zooming around town. This battery has more CCAs than my old one, plus a two year replacement warranty (warranty is great in Florida where the heat kills a battery within a few years).

                      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.

                  • Q:

                    Why does it say it "Requires top height adapter"? I have a 2006 Subaru Outback wagon 4 cyl. Although your site says the Group 35 and the Group 26R are both exact fit for my car, if you measure the original battery only the 26R will work, the 35 is too tall.

                      A:

                      The 26R battery is slightly smaller in dimension compared to a 35 group battery. The 35 group battery will still fit your 2006 Subaru Outback wagon 4 cylinder with a tight fit. While the AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 26R, 575 CCA - Part No. 26R-3 which is smaller may need a top height adapter to fulfill the height factor. Also please make a note that this battery is an exact fit for many other vehicles of Buick, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Mercedes, Pontiac, Toyota, Volvo etc. So some vehicles may require the top height adapter based on the model.
