This is the 3rd Optima Red top to fail after 1 - 2 years use by me, each in a different auto. Yes, the warranty was honored, but what a pain to have a rekatively new battery fail when you hop in your vehicle not expecting it. Anyone else out there having the same experience? My guess is the manufacturing process, or material purity was compromised when the business came under new ownership.

      great battery BUT it didn't fit too well in my `05 Toyota Corolla XRS. It was suppose to be an exact fit, but was a loose and i couldn't tighten the batter clamps anymore. Since i bought it already, i just stuck a 1" piece of wood between the battery and the clamp, worked fine... but looked kinda ghetto

      Comments about Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery, Group Size 35, 720 CCA:

      Even though this is probably may not be the cheapest battery you get what you pay for in this case. I have had OPTIMA batteries before and they last for a long time. My OEM battery died after a year and a half.
      My other OPTIMA battery was in my older vehicle that I sold with it and was seven years old and was still going strong . So that is the reason I bought another for my newer vehicle.

      The battery is well made and with good quality materials. I am glad I bought this because there were alot that were more expensive but I was pleasantly surprised by how well made and easy to install the Battery is, Plus it looks awesome under the hood

      I HIGHLY recommend if you are looking to buy and do not judge by price but by QUALITY of product and this is well worth the money I paid

        Battery was installed in 5 minutes and the battery turns the engine over instantly! Thought it would be a little lighter than the OEM battery that came out of my Highlander.

          Comments about Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery, Group Size 35, 720 CCA:

          The stock battery in my 2012 Mazda 3 just didn't cut it when it got below zero. I was looking for something with a lot of CCA that would last a few seasons, and this is the perfect battery to fit the bill. I have used Optima batteries in other vehicles where they were driving amplifiers and subs and they always delivered. The one drawback is that this battery is very heavy at near 35 lbs. I suppose in a daily driver it doesn't matter much, but in any application where weight is a factor, I would have to think twice about it. Overall, it has done the job I bought it to do, we'll see how it handles the rest of winter and next year before I really sing its praises.

            Replaced dying battery in my 2007 Forester with an Optima Red Top 35 series. The battery starts the car much better than the stock battery ever did. Great cold weather starting performance. Couldn't be happier.

              This optima is a direct replacement, meaning the posts are in the correct spot and with the provided spacer, the correct height.

              No core charge.

                I bought the battery in order to replace a rather pedestrian previous model that only lasted three months. With record cold temperatures in the Chicagoland area, I've been quite happy with the battery's performance -- especially since I don't store my car indoors.

                  • CUSTOMER CARE

                    A:

                    This Optima Batteries RedTop Starting Battery, Group Size 35, 720 CCA - part# 35 has 3 year free replacement warranty. Free Replacement Period begins the day of purchase and expires at the end of the Free Replacement Period printed on your original sales receipt. This period does not renew when the battery is replaced during the Free Replacement Period. If the battery becomes defective after the Free Replacement Period and prior to the end of the warranty period, the warranty benefit will be prorated and can either be credited toward the purchase of a new battery or refunded at our option. The proration amount shall be determined by dividing the purchase price by the number of months of the warranty period, then multiplying the result by the months remaining in the warranty period. Partial months are rounded to the nearest whole month. Installation of an automotive battery in any other type of vehicle or equipment voids your warranty. 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.
