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!

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.

Disappointing lifespan

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

      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.

                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.

                      Obviously a good battery has plenty of cranking amps and long lasting. Installed in a Mazda 3 and so far so good. Great Price with the coupon, not planning on keeping the car so it has been a great deal so far.

                        Easy to install and good spec for the price. However, the actual cranking amps is pretty far from the nominal in the spec. Highly doubt that it will last 4-5 years with Michigan's winters.

                          Same size as the riginal battery except for the height so you need to use the adapter to increase the height. Otherwise fits like a glove and works fine.

                              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.

                            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?
