Rated 5 out of 5 by SmokinDaddy Ditto what the fellow said below. Purchased two of these batteries for my Ford F250 diesel pickup back in November 2007. It's now June 2012 and just now having difficulty maintaining charge. Almost five years! Going back today to purchase two more.

Had the EverStart MAXX-65S in my Ranger pickup, and it lasted over 4 1/2 years (sticker date on battery was April 2007 and it is now Dec 2011). Going to Walmart today to pick up an exact replacement. I do recommend this battery to others, and it comes (came?) with a 3 year warranty but mine lasted way past those 3 years.
Rated 1 out of 5 by w8bbb Dead after a month of usage.
I bought this battery in September 2012, and it lasted a little over a month before it died. After spending a few hundred for a new starter and alternator, it was determined that the new battery was the culprit. Now, I cannot find a replacement, since it is not available within a 100 miles from my home. I would recommend that you buy another battery as a replacement.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trucknbear Very happy with the product I have
After reading these reviews.. I decided to check the battery in my 93 Ranger 4x4. I was pretty sure it had the same battery in it as in these reviews. While I realize that not all products are created equal. And their are good and bad in most anything you can buy...
I honestly couldn't remember when I had last replaced the battery in my Ranger.. And after checking it out.. I now know why. The case of the battery is yellow, not black. Its been awhile since they made those. Seems the date on the battery is 07-05. Making it almost 7.5 years old and still going strong. I was actually quite amazed myself..
Being an over the road truck driver.. I'm gone for long periods of time now and then.. and even after sitting for months, I've never had an issue with this battery firing my truck right up and be on my way home..
I wont hesitate to buy another one like it when the time comes. It may only last a couple months like some others in these reviews. But that's what the 3 year free replacement warranty is for. Just in case you do happen to get one of those bad apples.
Obviously the choice is yours. But I know what my choice will be, and I can recommend this product without hesitation.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Billsman Both batteries: dead
2002 F350 Turbo 7.3 L Diesel, bought both batteries new in 5/10 now a little over 2 years after both are dead. Pretty bummed, now I get to go back to walmart and fight with the sales people to try and get replacements.
Rated 3 out of 5 by batteryhead Bought another one
Last one lasted 4 years 3 months, bought another one tonight just before the "Blizzard of 2013" but next time I'll try a better brand, at $100 should last 6 years at least.
Rated 1 out of 5 by kwash33 Bad battery great Walmart customer service
Bought two of these for my truck, and in four days both batteries failed. The caps on both blew off and they boiled out. After going to a reputable repair facility and having them replaced and the damage to the engine compartment fixed (due to the battery acid), I went back to Walmart to attempt a refund. I was pleasantly surprised that they had no problem doing the refund, kudos to them. I had the batteries checked out to discover it was a manufacturing flaw, on one maybe, but both. Don't buy this battery....
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sc0000ter Good battery.
Have put Walmart batteries in all of my vehicles for the last 10 years and will be buying another two soon. First off, they have some of the best prices out there. Second, if a replacement is needed, there is a Walmart in just about any city/town/hamlet/etc that is open 24/7.
Just replaced one of these batteries in my wife's car last month. It lasted over 5 years. When I took it in to the store, they pro rated it towards my replacement no questions asked. IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! Keep your receipt! You have that, the warranty is painless. Will be replacing the pair of factory batteries in our new (used) truck in the near future.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cougertwo Great Battery
I had 2 of these installed in my diesel 3/4 ton truck over 6 years ago after another very popular brand that costed me $50 more lasted just barely past the warrenty date of 3 years. One of these Everstart MAXX batteries just died after outlasting the warrenty by 2 times and one is still good, but I went ahead and had 2 more put in (didn't want to just put one new one in) and I'm good to go for another 6 years I hope.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ghanesh 18 months and Battery dead
My Ford Expedition wouldn't start and I assumed it must be the starter because I replaced the Battery 18 months ago. It turns out it was the battery. First time in my 30+ years of car ownership that a battery has died so quickly. I hope the warranty covers the cost.
Rated 1 out of 5 by usagoal worked for awhile
I bought this battery for my old buick since my truck and commuter car both have everstart batteries in them. However it was right after 3 years I started having problems with it cranking my car over. It finally gave out and I had to get a jumpstart to get home. Not worth the $100 I paid for it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by rkybronc Bought this battery Jan 2012. July 2012 a bad starter solenoid on my sons Ranger took out the battery and alternator. Wal-Mart exchanged the batter with no problem as I kept the receipt. End of December 2012 we had a bad 2 week cold snap that killed the battery again. Just took the battery and receipt back to Wal-Mart and they exchanged again with no problems. My son runs a LOUD stereo system in his truck with an audio digital power capacitor and he has no drainage. Because of this, I have bought 2 more of these batteries for our F150 and Crown Vic. I recommend this to everyone who asks!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cookieman50 Bought this Battery in store for my 2000 F-150 in Feb/2010. Went completly dead and would not accept a charge in August/2012 (Actually could be charged but it would be dead the next day). This was only used occasionally to pull my boat less than 1 hour away from home. $100+ (by the time you add tax and core charge) for 2 1/2 years and less than 8000 miles seems like a bad investment no more than it was used.

Put this battery in my motor home in May 2011. Drove it about 200 miles last year to the lake where it sat until last fall. Started it about every two weeks. Went out to get the motor home ready to roll. Nothing. Put my battery tender on it and try charging, after two days it was up to 1.3 volts. Taking it back on Monday can't to see what is going to happen. Will let you all know when I get home.
