The battery on my 2011 LTZ crapped out this morning. Was going into its fifth winter so it was time. Got a good deal on a new Delco Advantage 34A battery, $66.07 with exchange. Friend installed it. Has 685 CCA versus OEM 600 CCA. Car starts up instantly now. Now is the time to evaluate your battery so it does not leave you in the cold.

That's pretty surprising. I buy pretty good batteries and they still start showing issues after 4-5 years between summer and winter temperature swings of about 90 degrees.

I have never tried reconditioning the batteries since they are under warranty and I usually get about 40% credit on them. If I recondition them and they fail later on then I end up paying more money for them, so I take them back when they start having issues.

Interesting you mention that. The battery in my POS Saturn is from 05.

Reconditioning? How do you do that?

I honestly don't know. I found a website that had a ton of info on car batteries several years ago and I think it had info on a certain charging and discharging method that could clean the buildup off of the lead plates and refresh the electrolyte so it would function better. It was never worth my time so I never played around with trying whatever it was that they suggested.

Not to dis on the product I sell, but don't expect much life out of that 'A' series battery. They only carry an 18 month warranty, and that's it. Keep your receipt in the car or hope the battery has a newer build date.

When I worked at the dealer, I sold plenty of 75A-72, & 78A-72 batteries. Living in Florida, we don't deal with winters, but these batteries were lucky to last 3 years before they were toast. These factory Delco batteries were built in America, Canada, Korea, & the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Of course they were for customer pay, & warranty tickets. For used cars, where the dealer paid we installed cheap Interstate batteries. GARY

Interstate is generally not a cheap battery ^^.

I agree, cheaper than OEM when talking dollars, but not in quality.

We [dealer ship employees] had a deal with the Interstate driver that any battery was $25 if it's been on the truck longer than a month. GARY
