I have been buying batteries at Autozone. They seem pretty good to me.

I've got an optima in the finny, always works great and the car goes for fairly long periods without running in these salty winter months. But they ain't cheap!

Optima is tops....

If you've got the scratch, you can't beat 'em.

I've got 4, and one is over ten years old.
