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.

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

    I have had good results with Advance Auto batteries. A well know consumer magazine rated them very high. I got the silver rather than the gold this time since I know I don't plan to keep this car a long time. The salesman recommended the gold for this 2014 Nissan because it is keyless push button start and the car is drawing on the battery all the time. For a short term owner the silver is fine.

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

          Only time will tell how long it will last but so far it seems like a very strong battery. I have some gauges very sensitive to the 12V power and these would normally shut off while cranking as the voltage dipped too much.

          Before purchasing this battery for a few days I swapped the battery from my other car. This is a 2 year old battery (5 year warranty) from a competitor with similar cranking rating. Even with this "good" battery I saw my gauges resetting.

          Once I installed the battery from Advance so far my gauges are happy during cranking - hopefully it stays this way.

          Completely fine battery. Needed a replacement for my 2005 Mazda3 and this little guy seems to be working fine (so far). Fingers crossed! Price seemed decent for a new battery and AdvancedAutoParts always has discounts going on when I need something new so that was definitely a plus! Would recommend

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

            Advance recommends the wrong size battery (26) for subaru forester. The silver 35 which was in stock in the store was not found on website. Same as all the box part stores, always a 50-50 chance if the right part is in the box or if the website matches the store. I'm sure the battery is fine, website needs some work.

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

                  Battery died one week before the two year warranty. Due to being out of town, the soonest I could get to AA, test and return it was six days after the two year warranty period expired. Explained this to the manager of the local AA store who understood and agreed to honor the warranty. But the system would not allow a return even though we know it died just before the 2 year point. The manager told me point blank that I was stuck with the defective battery and there was nothing he or AA could do about it. I called the AA corporate number to see if this was true and they verified that I was stuck with the defective battery and there was absolutely nothing they could do. So I asked if there was anyone higher up that can look into it and they said I would have to call tomorrow (most likely just to get the same run-around? No thanks). If the option existed to call the "higher-ups" then why couldn't the manager customer service call the "higher-ups" instead of saying there is absolutely nothing we can do? Wow, what a waste of time. Will purchase all my auto parts elsewhere from now on and recommend the same to all my family and friends (most of them use AA on my recommendation but will not anymore).

                      A:

                      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.

                      A:

                      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.
