Battery Type: AAA 72-Month 650 CCA
Battery was starting to go, wasn't recharging completely and one day was just dead. Called AAA who tested the battery and alternator, then replaced and installed a new battery in less than 1 hour from the time I called on Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend. At $99.95 plus tax, it was a bargain and the tech was great. Gotta love AAA.

No idea if good battery or not, but I guess I'll find out. Since I was at mercy of the towing company sent by AAA, I probably overpaid, but then again it was convenient.

Started my truck this morning and was very sluggish during ignition and lights flickered during ignition as well.... Stopped for gas about twenty minutes later and voila no good. What three me off was the check engine light that came on. Towed the truck to my nearest dealership (moron move I know). Where they said the battery was dead and it would cost 300.07 dollars....178.00 for batter, 110.00 parts and labor, and remainder taxes....I was reluctant to do so because of the price because that was very expensive in my opinion but it was already there and I didn't want to do the whole. Lost just to have it die out on me... Lesson learned take my ass to autozone.

Honda Accord Battery Replaced
Amount: $100.00

Car Make: 2006 HondaCar Model: Accord
Battery Type: Factory Honda Car Battery
Went to get car serviced at dealership, and did a load test on battery last year Sept '10, and it failed. However, car battery worked fine for another year, and recently had service again at same dealership in Sept '11. Battery again failed load test, but decided to replace the battery after five years. I remember how much is sucks to have a dead battery.

Factory price is $119.99 for the battery, but they price matched a coupon from another dealership for $89.95. Went ahead and changed the battery... $89.95+tax came out to ~$100 (note, left old battery there; assumed core exchange). Didn't know batteries were so expensive... last battery I paid for was about $70 for 1999 Toyota Camry.

I decided to buy a AAA membership for the first time a few months ago, and I'm glad I did! Yesterday, my car wouldn't start, so I called AAA to have them jump start it (I had cables in the car, but no one else would help me). I drove it around, took it home...and found out it wouldn't start again. So I called AAA another time, thinking I would just have them jump start it, and I would take it to Sears for testing. Well, instead, they tested everything themselves, and told me I needed a new battery. I had no clue about battery prices, but I trusted them when they said the price would be comparable to Sears, and had them replace the battery for less than $125 including tax. Took about an hour from the time I made the call to the time I had a working car, and the guy they sent out was very courteous. In hindsight, I could have gotten a new battery + installation cheaper elsewhere, but I was VERY pleased with the convenience and service of AAA.

I am buying my battery tomorrow, and as far as batteries go Interstate is top of the line. I am also getting a good deal for it. It is 700 CCA with an 84 month warranty. The first 2 and a half years are free replacement. I have always worked on my own cars, so will not need someone else to do a simple battery installation.
