Re: battery input!

I have been running the everstart maxx in my 05WK since I bought it about 4yrs ago. Just like all batteries, they don't make them like they used to, but I like the 3yr free replacement option on the Maxx. I've had to have it swapped about every 1.5yrs, so I'm just used to it.

I've always got a portable battery in the back so I've never worried about it, nor have I got stuck and needed the portable battery. After about 1.5yrs, the starts just become progressively slower and I'll take it in to be tested, where they'll say the CCA's are below rating: viola and new battery!

If you TL/DR'd, basically, for a cheapo battery, it can't be beat!

I went to autozone got the duralast platinum n everything is good now. The sales guy said the quality is basicly the same with the optima n the price is cheaper. Thank u for the input.
