The second one I have had for the Corvette....the last one lasted over 10 years and it still is holding a charge, I just didn't want it dying on me somewhere. Figure the cost per year and you can't beat it.

Just what I was looking for and with free delivery a no hassle approach. Keep in mind that these batteries are typically smaller in size than the originals which may cause issues with some installations. I think you can drop off your old battery at Advance and receive a $5 dollar in store credit....

I recently installed an OPTIMA red top into my Corvette and it has performed as I would expect a new battery to perform. With this part, I have started with no hesitation parked outside in Chicago despite the cold. I'm not sure this is any better or worse than I would expect from any brand of new battery. The test for this product will be in 5 years where I would think a lesser battery would fail.

I love the batteries I purchased and I saved a ton with the price match from amazon.com. I have these batteries in my 2003 Ram 3500 5.9L diesel and the beast starts everytime without the aid of a block heater. I have only tested the batteries at 12 degrees F. I am sure they will work when it reaches -25 degrees F.

I have had about 4 of these batterys and i still have one that is 10 years old and still strong. That one has been in and out of 5 different vehicles and never has let me down.
