After the store installed my battery I discovered my radio, CD player & clock did not work. Upon calling my Honda dealer they informed me I needed a code. They are unable to give me the code until I pull the radio from my car and give them the radio's serial no.

After telling this to a friend who is a car dealer he said to have avoided this situation the installer should simply have plugged something into my cigarette lighter which would have maintained the code while the battery was being changed. By their not doing this it has caused me considerable time and aggravation just to get my radio and clock to work again. My clock and radio are still not working and I will need to hire someone to remove the radio from my car.

I am very dissatisfied that the installer did not take the time to do the job correctly by trying to get the job done as quickly as possible as opposed to spending a little more time and having a satisfied customer instead of a frustrated, dissatisfied customer.

    My Civic was having trouble starting in cold weather, and this fixed it. I've only had it a few weeks, so I can't comment on the useful life of the battery.

            Battery was way over priced. The $25 coupon that you offer is only good for a month after my purchase (but of course you don't mention that until after the purchase). You probably count on people not using them. Doesn't do me much good.

                I bought this to replace the battery in my honda civic. Dropped in without any fitment issues. Good cranking power. We've just gone through several days of overnight temps in the high 20's and low 30's and the starting power was not diminished.

                    I bought the same size and brand from Advanced auto 6 years ago. I figured any standard battery that lasts 3 years over the manufacturers warranty is a heck of a battery. So, decided to purchase another. The one I purchased actually had more CCA than the old one but the older one seemed to have more power. The new battery is made in Mexico. There is no reason for this considering the price of this new battery is twice the price of the old one. I would have given 5 stars if it was made in the usa.

                    Service rep did not explain core charges at all. Seemed like they wanted to keep the old battery and refund core charges.

                    Additionally he went in and talking on phone for 10 minutes keeping me waiting for installation. Way to Go.

                        Battery group size indicates the battery size that will best fit the physical dimensions of your vehicle. Many vehicles can accommodate more than one group size.
