Outstanding

The Optima has proven to me to be the best battery for the money on the market today. Why pay many dollars for a regular battery at a local parts store when for just a few dollars more you can buy an optima delivered to your shop. I use them is street rods as they can sometimes sit for several weeks and not be used OPTIMA has never failed me. Autoanything's price is better than other places and includes shipping. Normal delivery is usually within several days. A win-win for me.

Expensive but worth it

The last Optima battery I had lasted 9 years, with lots of abuse. The replacement from AutoAnything was delivered quick, and saved me about $70 from buying it locally. Best deal around.

Outstanding Quality and performance

I have Red Tops in my 78' 6.6L T/A and three of my kids Cherokees. Yellow tops are in my 02' 4X4 Suburban and my 06' Diesel 4X4 F350 Super Duty. Perfect starts all the time!

A Quality Product

Purchased this Optima to replace the Optima that finally failed after 10yr.5mo. of reliable service. Plus with an AGM, there's no harmful gasses for riding underhood metals. I'm a fan.

Optima Battery

I use Optima batteries in almost everything I own. They are great batteries and usually last years after the warranty has expired.

Count on it !!

I replaced the factory battery with a Optima Red Top and set up a dual battery system with a second Yellow Top battery dedicated just for my winch, off road lights etc. It's the only one I trust. How long did last, you ask? It was 7 years ago. I still have it under my shop bench hooked up to something else. In fact I just bought another Red Top and installed it in my Jeep Wrangler!! When your out on the trails you can Count on it. The Optima battery will get you there and back. A 10 in my book

THE GREATEST BATTERY YOU CAN BUY

For the money I love these batteries. I have had them last me 7-8 years and still keep going. Yes they have a 3 year replacement and several other batteries on the market offer that but I have never used the replacement or even the proration warranty after owning the Optima brand for over 10 years now. DO the math and enjoy the reliability of this battery. My only complaint with Optima is not offering a replacement for my 10 Jeep Grand Cherokee & 2014 Yukon XL when a 34R & 34 worked just fine.

Optima 34/78

I have been using Optima batteries for ten years and have had good service life from all of them. They are in all my hot rods and classic cars and I will continue with them .

Safe upside down

Easy to install Battery is inside behind the driver seat. Nice to know that if you roll the car the battery acid won't be leaking on you as it is dry construction.

to early to tell

The battery is way to small to fit in my 2011 f-150 had to add a l bracket to the negative cable in order to get it to reach the terminal. The red and black proctor for the side post mount is missing the covers. There are alot of complants about this battery so only time will tell if I I made a wise choice and it comes with a free battery tender a $100 dollor value not a bad deal.

Great for Jeeps

I needed a battery that would stand up to the bouncing, the Red Top was chosen, for I knew of it's history as a tough battery. So far has performed very well, as expected. No complaints.

OPTIMA Red Top 2003 Mustang GT

My Mustang was having trouble starting, so before replacing the alternator or starter motor, I thought to replace the battery. Sure enough, my old batter was only cranking out 10 volts- 2 volts below the recommended level for a battery for a car of my class. I had heard about the incredible performance of OPTIMA batteries and decided to check it out for myself. I have had this installed for two weeks and my starting issues are gone! Not to mention my car seems to be running better in general!

On the road again ...

The battery in my stored Corvette croaked and defied attempts to resusitate it. The new Red Top had the motor running on the second crank.

Grump

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.
