I have been through some interstates in the last few years so I agree. They just warranty them so its free or else i would change.

There are only three or four companies that actually make car batteries. They just make them to the specs provided by whomever is OEM'ing them.

That said, I am running Autozome Duralast Gold batteries. They are also made by the same people as Interstate and Die Hard.

Mine are about two years old.

AC Delco Professional. I'm not saying they are the greatest batteries ever, but they offer the best warranty I've seen so far. 50 month replacement(not pro-rated). I have two of them, one was replaced under warranty about 8 months ago. I don't get another 50 months on the replacement, it goes by the original purchase date.They will be 50 months old in July 2012. I believe I payed 115.00 each. Living in FL, with the heat, I'm perfectly fine buying a new set every 50 months if I had to. I'm kinda actually hoping the other one goes before the warranty is up. That would give me at least 7-8 years for $115.00 each. Not bad

Mine blew in front of checkers so I just got their gold ones. 2yrs even with 2 bad gprs and a sub and no starting problems do can't complain. I've heard the same thing about only a handful of manufactures though.
