    Time will tell if Duralast will continue to be my battery choice

    2 of 2 people found this helpful

    This is the 3rd battery my truck has had in 20 years. When removing the old Duralast Gold 78-DLG, I found a plastic envelope attached to the side of the battery from when it was new that contained a free jump-start roadside assistance card. The back side of the card stated that the card had to have been activated before 1 July 2005 to be valid and was only good for 3 years, so it would have been worthless last night when the wife and I push started the truck. So assuming the card was good when I purchased the last battery, it lasted no less than 11 years, and the original battery from GMC lasted no longer than 9 years. During those 11 years the truck has driven across country and up-and-down the west coast a few times. It has also sat for 6-7 months at a time while I've been on deployments. The old battery also got me home last year during when the volt/ammeter told me the alternator was dying. I'm hoping the new battery lasts just as long as the old one.

    The new ones no longer have the yellow top. They no longer have the built in carry handle either. They no longer have those distantly familiar words "Made in USA" written on the label under the reserve capacity rating (which is just plain depressing). And there's no two free jump starts a year roadside assistance card (is it because Autozone doesn't have faith in the Chinese/Mexican/Wherever made battery?). As best I can tell, they're still made by Johnson Controls and distributed by Best Parts, they're just not advertising where specifically it was made.

    Time will tell if Duralast will continue to be my battery choice.

    Pros: Last one lasted a good long while

    Cons: Where'd the yellow top go?

    4 year battery

    3 of 3 people found this helpful

    Battery only lasted 4 years in a daily driver with no alternator issues and nothe more than 2 weeks of being parked at a time during winter, daily driver for summer. Should last longer than 4 years especially considering how it was used.

    Best Battery I've Ever Had!

    A friend of mine bought me this battery 2 years ago. It is still going strong! Best batter I've ever had! I have a 1998 Chevy Lumina and sometimes I'll leave my car sit for 2 weeks. I'll get in, turn the key and starts right up! I live in south western Pennsylvania. This battery has seen cold, snow, freezing rain, etc. and this battery has never failed me. The people that say it won't hold a charge, have you checked to make sure your alternator is charging? Autozone will check it for free. It can't hurt. I have a 100amp alternator on my car and I had Autozone check it after I had my battery installed. It checked out fine. The only thing that went bad when I bought this battery is that Autozone wouldn't install it for me because with my bad luck my car's battery just happens to be tucked underneath the windshield washer resevoir. I have never seen this design before but Chevy made a mistake when they designed the placement for my battery. It's like they built the car around my battery. Anyway, I can't say anything bad about this battery. I am hoping it lasts the full 5 years!

    Pros: After 3 Years Still Going Strong!

    Cons: Nothing
