I may need to buy two new batteries shortly. In the opinion of the forum, what is the best battery to buy here in Canada, or should I wait until we go south in 6 weeks time?
I will not buy anything but AC Delco. (Well almost not buy anything but AC Delco). I have had nothing but good luck with them. I currently have a 7 year old battery in a 2001 Trans Am. I do not drive this car in the winter and it currently only has about 14,000 miles on it. I put a battery tender on it only in the winter. I recently replaced an AC Delco in my 1979 T/A that was 6 years old. In six years I have only driven this car 1,000 miles. I only keep a battery tender on it in the winter but have had to fully charge it once in a while. The Ac Delco in my wife's Tahoe is 5 years old and was just replaced this past summer. She was 550 miles from home on the road and it crapped out on her on a Saturday. The GM dealership parts dept. in Atlanta were closed, and I could not tell her where else to buy an AC Delco. She was near an Auto Zone and bought a Duralast Gold. I hear they are not too bad, I am curious to see how long this battery last.I know I'll get flack for this, but I've had years of great luck with AC-Delco. Presently own 9 of them. No problems now — never in decades of that brand. Just don't torque the cable bolts to idiot tightness. These days, your money goes further in the states.
