NAPA...has always worked for me...and I've never had to use their warranty, unlike a few other car batteries!

I know INTERSTATE also makes a great battery!

The most reliable battery I've owned was a white case Deka 1000 (1100 CA & 1000 CCA). It lasted 10 years in my pickup before I had to replace it.

I used to buy nothing but Sears Diehard, but i've found that Wal Mart batteries are made by Exide and are as good. No problems with them, they have a good warranty, and are reasonably priced.

I also bought Diehard batteries, but they always died three months before the warranty run out, now i use Auto Zone or Wal Mart batteries and have not had any problems with them.

Whoever makes the Ford Motorcraft battery gets my vote.
In my purchased-new 1990 F-150, I finally replaced the battery in 1997. In December of 2001, I purchased an new '02 F-150, and that battery is still in the truck, starting it every day for the past almost-11 years. Of course, now that I've put this into print, it'll probably crap out when I go out later this morning to run some errands. :D

I buy the cheapest battery I can find...which is usually wally world. They last just fine and stand up against any of the higher priced batteries I have bought in the past.

I've been using Car Quest batteries for long time.My wife works for them in upper management so we get her discount. They have proven to be a great battery. Of course CQ have their good ,better and best line. I buy the best they have same with their oil filters. I have never had to replace one under warranty.My old Ford has a CQ battery.That has to be close to 7 years old. It doesn't get used much and when I hit the key it cranks. It can sit for few weeks and it turns it right over.

When I had my Nissan Titan the factory battery lasted less than 4 years. Replaced it with a CQ. Took it out when I traded it in and put a cheaper battery in it.

I never had good luck with the Sears Die Hards.

I've had three Die Hard batteries and will not buy a fourth. Each time the new one would die fast and had to be pro-rated for a replacement. They seem to die hard rather quickly. Look elsewhere.

I understand from several pros I know that there are only three battery manufacturers in the U.S., no matter what brand is on them. I just buy whatever's on sale, and get one notch below the best. Usually just a few months less, for a lot less green.
