Don't consider a recommendation to Crappy Tire for batteries as a troll post. A few years ago, I bought one of their Eliminator SLA batteries during one of their standard sale. The battery itself wasn't a door crashing spectacular deal -- it was just a reasonable price for a high CCA battery. The part that I thought was really good was the $10 extra for a 6 (additiona) year free-replacement warranty, bringing the total battery replacement period to a whopping 9 years. I take care of my SLA batteries, but personally, I'd never expect any one of them to last me 9 years. So effectively, I'm getting my battery covered for 9 years for the price of a single battery.

(Or, perhaps some of you will say that not only did I get jipped on the battery, but I also got jipped a second time on the extended warranty as well... )

Costco batteries are just as shitty as CT ones if it's a car you don't drive that often... I've gone through quite a few of them on my 68 Mustang that sits most of the time.

I ended up spending a little bit more on an Interstate battery... never looked back.

I have bought 5+ batteries for my work trucks from WANNA

They will give you $15 bucks for your old battery and offer 60 month and 72month warranty with 18 month replacement period.

Costco's Kirkland batteries were rated #1 by Consumer's Report magazine last month if you believe in their tests.

The canadiantire ones are actually pretty good as their capacity is the highest an e9x can have (110AH), they have a 5 year warranty + additional 5 year residual warranty (or whatever its called, where you pay a %) and also free roadside assistance.

I believe it was $159.99 when it was on sale.

I've gone through alot of batteries due to my amperage hungry monoblock amp, for lead acid I recommend Napa's east penn batteries.
If you want a good battery that will last you a long time consider switching to a AGM like Deka Intimidator. I run two deka's in the trunk and a XS Power AGM as my starter and have seen my voltage drop down to 11.9 volts when I'm hammering my system and have had no issues.
Check out Federal Battery in Richmond or Polar Battery on Boundary Road I've dealt with both companies and they both offer great customer service.
