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.

The product is okay. Its a car battery so what else can be said. I had paid online to pickup at the store & Adv Auto had the battery ready, but as my car was sitting at home w/ dead battery, did not want battery installed. This created a problem getting the turned in dead battery credited. I had to leave and come back for the credit.....this was not good. I was told it usually takes 30 min to get that credited at the counter and usually isnt an issue when batteries are installed by Adv Auto. Well, I still didnt like it, but I left and came back later to pickup my credit. The supervisor that was helping me was very nice & tried everything he could so okay. What I didnt like was the online tranaction. I used the chat to verify correct battery choice. The online guy gave me a $50 off coupon code to use. I followed the coupon limitations, but could not get the $50 off. Then when I told the store they told me they couldnt help w/ online purchases. So this will prevent me from ever buying anything else from Adv Auto. One time before I used Adv Auto and they sold me the wrong amp battery. I've tried them again and now they dont do what they say/advertise they do so this is my last purchase from Adv Auto.

      Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 36R, 650 CCA:

      This is a standard, unsealed battery for ordinary use on an automobile. Keep it charged and don't let the water get low and it will easily last five years. It is priced appropriately at about 60% of the price of a sealed battery. If you cannot afford a Die Hard or equivalent class of battery, this is the next one down. Advance's price is within $5 of other parts dealers.

      The battery was exactly what I needed. I used this in a farm tractor. It is physically shorter than the previous battery I had. The shorter height made it easier to get it into the tight space.

      Cons

      • Reliability
      • Warranty

      Best Uses

        Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 36R, 650 CCA:

        I bought this battery in September of 2014. That one died after about 10 days, with a bad cell, so I returned it for another. That one lasted until September 2016, when it just died, again with a bad cell.

        Upon my return, I was about a week out of warranty. Apparently, there is no prorated warranty anymore, so even one day out of warranty, you are just out of luck. No proration, no consideration.

        The counter girl was very nice and apologetic, but I really expect to get more than two years out of a battery. And I wonder if it is engineered poorly to make it JUST BARELY two years. In any case, I replaced it with one from another vendor to try my luck there.
