Unhappy A touchy topic for me.

My current batt has been in Liesel for over three years. a 700 cold-AMP NAPA brand.

The previous TWO where also 700AMP NAPA batts. Both of which died within three months of purchase. Both!

On the death of the third one the Napa parts store said "something must be wrong with your car! We won't replace it!"

My long-time mechanic upon hearing my plight said "I do allot of business with NAPA. Leave your battery here. I'll talk to the NAPA rep".

The salesmen confirmed it was a dead cell and added that NAPA franchises are not above re-packaging defective batteries. “There’s money to be made”!

Lesson learned: Don't buy NAPA batts.

'79 300D, "Liesel von Diesel", 235K

I kid proofed the house....but they still get in
