Walmart batteries suck

So its been 3 years and time to put in the 4th set. I am done with this junk. I put in come costco batteries yesterday and they start the truck like they should! No more walmart junk here!

Now that its cold out your batteries need to be in the best shape to handle the load. Costco batteries are made by the same guys that make the motocraft batteries.

I had the Walmart 3 year replacement batteries. I replaced them twice in three years. I've now got Motorcraft and they work great. Some things you just can't cheap out on. Yellow tops if these don't last.

I got no problem using Walmart batteries.
My last set lasted three years. Im OK with that
Just replaced them with the same ones.

If you've gone through 4 sets of batteries in three years you need to have a look into your charging system IMO

This set actually lasted me the longest. When I bought the truck the ones in it were a few months old. They died and I replaced them. 1-2 months later those died. then the next set lasted maybe 6 months. this set that just died were about 1.5 years old.

I have walmart never starts in my boat and those lasted a season at best. I will never buy walmart batteries again. well wait... I have never bought them. They seem to keep finding me! oh and the 2 I went through in my subaru when I got it was also crap.

No matter what they are in, I have bad luck with them. Put duralast in the subaru and been rinning strong for 4 years. Need to replace the boat again, but now its winter time so it will sit for awhile.
