My battery is failing me and I need to replace it. I could go to walmart or autozone and just pick up another one but I would like to buy a good quality battery. I heard about diehard, but I just read a lot of negative reviews on them (not lasting more than 2 years), although sears replaces them for free. If I can afford an interstate i suppose ill go with that.
Any suggestions?

i was speaking specificly of the D51 yellow top... its a turd of a batt, flawed by design

OPTIMA..Good battery
I disagree...


to the people who swear by optima... have you ever tried another "high performance" battery? such as Northstar, Hawker, Oddysey, or XS Power?

well idk anything about the optima's but i just double checked and it turns out that i do have an old interstate in my car. it started fine this morning so ive decided to recharge it and give it a second chance. think ill buy some new terminal wire connections and make sure those are all tight. thanks for all the response though
