I need a new battery for my old car. Where can I get the best one for the money? Thanks.
Battrees is too much spensive. Buy a new car, it comes with new battree usually.
I've found that a cheap battery is usually the most expensive long term.
Walmart Automotive or Interstate Battery.
Tractor supply has a couple inexpensive ones that work very well and wal-mart has a value line now.
And a couple places here in the city to get 45 dollar ones and the local salvage yard will usually have a few good ones.
I just got 2 for 35 each plus a core.
I would look at the salvages first.
LKQ on MacArthur usually has a big assortment of tested batteries. They are $26.75 with a $10 core charge. Shows you can also get an extended warranty for $8.02.
Do NOT go to walmart for a neverstart, I mean everstart. You'll be back in a month asking for a return.
Get something of decent quality like Continental, Interstate or Duracell.
There are only a few automotive (lead-acid) battery manufacturers in the US. No matter the brand, it's made by one of these.
I usually go for the cheapest one with a good warranty-to-price ratio that I can find.
I usually buy Interstate but damn they are expensive.
I ended up getting a $45 battery at Atwoods. It's got a 12 month warranty. I'll see how long it lasts.
I've been using Sam's Club. Duracell batteries. I had a pair in my diesel truck that went totally bad 5 days before the 3 year warranty expired. Got 2 new batteries with a 5 day warranty that lasted another 3 years.
The Sam's tech also fixed a leaky tire problem that Robertson's was unable to resolve - at no charge.
