I wanted something with highest CA and CCA for my '03 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS, and although the correct size, I went with higher CA and CCA due to having a very low drain from a top-notch security system on car and with cold winters and very hot summers where I lived, not going with the 'factory recommendations', upgrading to this was affordable and Shawna at Parson's Ave. Store in Columbus, OH knows her stuff, load-testing my system to make sure nothing else was bad. Kudos!

I needed a battery for my daughters car. The person installing was very nice and helpful. He also added a battery back-up while installing so that nothing had to be reset like the clock / radio.

Purchased battery online & got an extra 20% off.... drove to the store.... Rep pulled up order on their computer.... retrieved battery & placed on cart so another employee could wheel it to the car & install.... took the old battery away. Was there only about 15 minutes, then motored out of parking lot with new battery installed. Advance Auto Parts took all the pain out of replacing a car battery!

  • Q:

    Others have asked this question but no good answer. I have an 01 Eclipse that calls for a size 86 battery. I tried to order online and it says the gold does not fit but the silver does. I called my local store and they tell me the same thing, but cannot explain why. Physical dimensions are the same??? I went elsewhere.

    • A:

      There are different size group 86 batterys They might fit the car, bit it will not be exactly the same size so you might have a little trouble fitting it in the car. 
      It might fit fine but they try to sell exact fits because if it's a little too small and it moves around while driving it can cause the battery to go bad sooner and thus they would have to warranty it.

  • Q:

    Looking for a bettery for an 03 Eclipse. Currently have a group 86 battery in my car, actually Autocraft gold. Webpage is reccomending an 86-1, Group 86, Silver. When I manually sellect an 86-2, Group 86, Gold webpage states battery does not fit my vehicle. Shouldn't the 86-2 Gold fit? Is this just a catalog error?

      Hi Sheffield, this battery is not an exact fit for your 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Currently, the AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 86, 525 CCA (Part No. 86-1) is the only exact battery in Group 86 is available online for your vehicle.

  • Q:

    Would this battery (86-2) be classified as a conventional/low-maintenance battery or as an AGM?
    Asked on 1/22/2015 by JohnEastCoast from NC

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      I'm happy to help, JohnEastCoast! This Autocraft Gold Battery (Part No. 86-2) and all Gold, Silver and Economy or red label Autocraft batteries are conventional/low-maintenance batteries. The Autocraft Platinum and Optima batteries are AGM. Optima batteries utilize spiral-cell AGM technology which provides 15x the vibration resistance of a conventional battery and a stronger starting burst.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Your warranty begins the day you purchase the battery, and expires at the end of the warranty period printed on your original receipt and Order Confirmation email, or when you sell your vehicle, whichever occurs first. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time.

  • Q:

    I purchased this battery back on 4/7/09 and the past few days I notice something weird. When I crank it, it starts fine but I notice the lightd are very dim and after 5-10 seconds it's like someone turned on the light switch and everything is bright. I just checked it with a meter and with the key in the ignition it reads 12.3v. As I turn the key it reads 10v, then 12v, then after a few seconds it rises to 14.1v. Could there be a problem with either the battery or the alternator?

    • A:

      Sounds like a ground problem to me... Make sure the negative cable is clean and tight..With a reading of 14.1 volt.. the alternator is working properly...If cleaning and tightning the ground doesn't solve your problem.. I would have the battery checked under a load...

      Answered on 2/20/2010 by speedy219 from richmond, In.
    • A:

      The first thing i would check is the battery terminal connections. First disconnect them from the batt, and scurb them with a wire brush, and pour some vinager on the terminal posts. Recconnect them and start. If problem still persists then take off your altenator and take it in to nearest Advance Auto Parts Store and have them test the voltage regulator. If voltage regulator is bad you can replace just that , or buy new altinator.
