I had a no-start condition, but the lights worked and the motor cranked. Given the car wouldn't start, I took the battery in to Advance and they tested it. Just as I had suspected, the battery had a bad cell. Bought a new battery, fit perfectly and now the car starts without a problem. The diagnostic tools at Advance make this SO much easier!

The motorcraft battery it replaced was only 70 months into its 100 month stated life span. Buying a new battery from Advance was less expensive than making a warranty claim with Motorcraft.

Half the time it won't start my car in the Winter here in Maine. I keep it charged with a battery charger 24hs a day and that still doesn't help. It is the worst battery I ever owned. I live in Maine and have for many years and had the same car here for many years. I had no problems EVER with starting in the cold winters with my previous battery that I bought from a different company. Last year I finaly had to buy a new battery so I selected the highest cranking amps of all the batteries that were listed for my car which was this exact model silver 36R-1. I bought it in April. By the Fall when the cold barely started I occassionaly would have starting problems only on the cold days. Now in the dead of Winter it starts 50% of the time even though I keep it charged 24 hrs a day with a battery charger in my garage for the few days I don't drive it. I often have to jump start it with my Volvo even with it being charged fully with my battery charger. It's horrible. I doesnt have enough cold cranking amps in real life even though its rated cold cranking amps are more than sufficient for what my car's rated needs are. In real life cold conditions it just doesn't perform and only starts the car about half the time. Its very intermitten and I never had a problem starting until I changed to this battery. I called and they said they will test it and if it seems ok I can't get a replacement and I can't upgrade to a better stronger battery unless the manager feels like it. What kind of policy is this? I even asked the customer service on the website and they can't offer me a better replacement policy. I know it will test fine because it takes a full charge its just the actual cold cranking amps are weaker than what it rated and unless they test it outside with the battery exposed to below 32 F temps it won't show its weakness and they will just say its fine. I am very unhappy with this battery and I want to upgrade the the gold but its not listed as an option for my car and if the manager doesn't want to let me.. he doesn't have to because their policy doesn't require him to. Be warned if you live in cold weather. I am not happy with their policy of how they test and of their weak batteries. For this price I had the top of the line battery and should have just went back to that same store and not wasted my money here.

            Bought battery January 2013. Since then battery dies everytime it is below 30 degrees. Had battery tested multiple times at advanced auto and they keep telling me its good and wont honor the 2 year warranty. Would suggest getting your batteries from somewhere else.

                          With reference to this AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 36R, 650 CCA - part# 36R-1, the core charge is basically a deposit to ensure that your old part can be rebuilt. Once the part is received it will go to the manufacturer for testing to see if it can be rebuilt. If the part can be rebuilt you will receive the core credit back on the credit card you used to purchase the part. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                          the date on the battery is the month and year the battery was made. if you look on the front of it it should tell you how many years the battery is to last(3 year warranty or so) if the battery goes out or wont hold a charge in those years the warranty , you can get another free of charge.

                          This battery has a 24 month free replacement and a 72 month pro-rated warranty.

                          Not any longer. Only the Autocraft Gold batteries come with a pro rate warranty.

                        What is the proper fill level for battery acid in the Autocraft batteries? Is it up to the bottom of the black tubes or should it stay below the bottom of the tubes?

                          The proper amount is just above the cells. Once the water level is covering the cells inside, it is full.
