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.

        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.

                      The online price was very good and they did the installation at the store. This was a replacement for an older Advance battery that was failing during the prorated warranty period, So I received a partial refund on the old battery. The old battery lasted about 4 years. The company did stand behind the warranty after a little debate.

                        Not everyone knows this. There are 4 manufactures of batteries. Johnson Control makes this one. It also makes many over brands under different brands. Have Advanced check electrical system. It is FREE. They will also install for FREE. They check the alternator, starter, battery. This you must do. If any of these systems do not operate at spec, it will drain your new battery. Order online and got $40 off with coupon code. Walked away with battery for $80 with core trade in. Praise the Lord and pass the grease gun.

                            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.

                            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.
