Consumer Reports rate this battery tops and there's a reason why. It's a good quality, dependable battery. I've bought these before and always had the best of luck. The trick is to look at the date stamped on the the battery before you buy. The month of manufacture is determined by the alphabet. A is January etc. and the year follows. You may have to dig back in the pack to get a fresh one, (less than 6 months old) but that said, You should be pleased with your purchse.
1st battery failed in warranty period. Replacement lasted less than 2 years (21months) this was a 3year warranty battery. It was not replaced under the warranty because it was a replacement for a previous defective battery. This battery was used in a personal vehicle in a normal manner. There was no abuse. I could never recommend this product.
I bought this battery yesterday on the basis of the Consumer Reports rating. It had a sticker on the top with a date of 10/12 and so was less than 6 months old as CR had recommended it be. I installed the battery myself and, thank goodness I checked the water level before installing. All six cells were low and it took a little over 2 cups of water total to fill all six to near the top. Maybe this is how they are shipped and, if walmart had installed this for me, they would do this routinely. Otherwise, once installed, my 2001 S-10 pickup cranked strong and started up in 1-2 seconds. I'll update this review if any problems arise.
I got this battery as it fit into my 1995 Buick Park Avenue base model. Well I live in a cold climate and I am sure to start my car everyday to get some charge in it, make sure the gas isn't freezing. I bought this battery in December of 12, and it was manufactured November of 12. Within a couple of weeks it started to freeze. When I took the battery out to bring it inside it sounded slushy on the inside. I start and drive my car EVERY DAY! It should not be freezing. After i thawed it out, it cranked the car up just fine with no issues. Today, poof, nothing its dead. I was just in it last night, to a 30 minute road trip. The battery isn't frozen, plenty of fluid, its just magically dead. Nothing such as a power drain caused it as all of my lights, heating/cooling system, and interior lights, and even my radio are turned off before i leave my car. Disappointed. I will unfortunately have to use the warranty until I can't anymore. I wish it was just more reliable. I may have gotten a faulty battery... that happens. But in my opinion there should not be this many faulty batteries... who does quality control?
had exactly one year had to be replaced
These look great at the store. Labeled with the 8 year life span. Biggest problem is the warrantee is a flat 3 years. Beyond 3 years and you are on your own. These batteries simply do not last. The one presently in my car is 25 months old and will only hold a 50% charge at 75 degrees. Let the car sit outside on a cold day (20 - 25 degrees) and the charge degrades to 30%. This will not start a car.
This is the 4th one of these I have had to replace. Two of them cracked at the side terminal entries and leaked acid in the battery compartment and down over the engine compartment and garage floor and two dropped voltage to useless levels. Now, here we go again and the ogre in the auto parts area says NO to honoring the 3 year warrantee because the battery shows 50% charge at room temperature. Doesn't matter if it won't start my car. "Your only option is buy a new one"
Well, I will buy a new one but not at Walmart !!!
Seriously, these batteries appear to be engineered to fail very close to 3 years but the design is faulty and they wont last that long. The 8 year label is complete nonsense. If you only need a 2 year battery this will probably be OK but is way overpriced for a 2 year battery. Look at any other brand if you want a regular battery that will last a typical 4 - 5 year life.
I have two of these batteries. One is in my 98 Honda Accord and the second is in my 96 Buick Lesabre. The Accord battery is doing just find. I've had it over three years now and have no complaints. I have replaced the Buick's battery twice (I'm on my third one of these batteries). Everyone one of these batteries in the Buick has gone bad before the warranty ended so I've gotten two free batteries. I have had to replace them all at about a year and the third one it right at the year mark and dead as well. For the longest time I thought someone was wrong with my car. Then after having an honest mechanic with over 25 years of experience look at the car was told by him it may just be that these are cheap batteries. I have been thinking he was wrong until I read a lot of the other reviews. But now I'm sure its the batteries.
I say DON'T get this battery. It's a gamble whether it will work or not after a years time.
For the most part these batteries are junk. They usually don't last 3 full years and if they do they always die right after the warranty expires. I buy them exclusively for the 3 year free exchange warranty. I own 5 in various vehicles and ALWAYS return them after no later than 2 years and 11 months (if they make it that far) for a new one. Bottom line is this is the last battery you'll ever have to buy and can get a replacement all over the USA.
This battery is just a $100 piece of junk! It lasted only about one year, then I had to wait around for an hour to an hour and a half just to get Walmart to test it. Time to switch batteries and suppliers I think.
I bought one of these many years ago and had it for 8yrs until I sold my truck. I just had to replace the original battery out of my car. I put the maxx 75 in and had a complete failure before the first month. They swapped the battery out. The failed battery was produced less than a week before I bought it according to the sticker on the battery. I hope the replacement lasts as long as the on I had in my truck! I still believe they make decent batteries because I have the same one in my girlfriends car for a little over 6yrs.
HAD TO REPLACE 2 MONTHS BEFORE WARRANTY EXPIRED. NOW THIS MAXX -75N 700 CCA IS ONLY 11 MONTHS OLD AND IT NEEDS CHARGING.
I bought my battery in May 2013 and in December 2013, and January 2014 had to have my car
jumped 5 times. Bought a charger to charge the battery and got a warning on the charger. Got the car started just to get it to a dealer and they said there was nothing draining my battery but the
battery had been frozen. They checked my complete car just to make sure that I did not have an electrical problem that was draining the battery. NO I WOULD NOT BUY ANOTHER BATTERY OR TELL MY FRIENDS. It was a good thing I was always at home when it would not start.
On my 1999 Pontiac Firebird, this Battery kept the fires lit. It is a full blown race engine with 100,000 volts of spark energy and alcohol injected. The 75N battery purchased in August 2008 performed better than other batteries I have ever bought. The only thing that killed it was leaving it drained for 2 years without charging it. If not for that, it would last many more years. I give it 5 stars.
Im on my 4th Replacement in 4 or 5 years. The battery holds a charge if you use the car daily. Leave your car sit for a few days and the battery goes dead. The alternator is fine was tested . Its as though these are recycled dead or defective batteries. In the cold weather the battery goes dead quickly . I have replaced each battery within a year of the next and they dont even last that long .
I have purchased three of these batteries in the last six months. I live in North Dakota and rely on batteries to make sure my vehicle starts in cold weather, and basically to keep me from being stranded and keep me alive. All three of my vehicles batteries failed the same day when it was only 20 below zero. I will never purchase these again!
I got this battery on 09/29/06 and it is just now starting to show signs that it needs to be replaced almost 7 years later!!! This battery was not used in a little economy car it was in a 1990 Chevy silverado z71 which has a v8! it has been offroading and used as a every day car and this battery has amazingly lasted through it all.
I purchased my everstart battery in august of 2009 for my 2006 Honda Accord 4 cylinder. It just began showing signs of needing replacement September 2013. My car uses a lot of high battery features such as delay interior lighting until vehicle is locked, lights flicker with lock and unlock, and eventual horn blow if i click lock feature too many times, which i do a lot lol. 4 straight years with no problems whatsoever? and this battery was $67. You can't beat that. :)
I bought my 99 trans am over 10 years ago And never had any problems with the battery that came with the car. 8 of those 10 years it was in winter storage in a garage in northern nh where it drops to 30 / 40 below zero many a nights and every spring when i drove up to get my car it always turned over no problem. I need to replace it now and i will put the same everlast battery in it.
Ive went through three batterys in 3 years each time they went bad I was stranded in winter weather. If you want to stand around for an hour to get a new one every year that wont last buy one? I recently got a new 1 under warranty that is dead after 2 months?
I'm sorry you are having problems with your car. EverStart is build by the worlds largest battery manufacturer to the highest standards. It has been named the Top Value in Automotive batteries 4 years in a row by Consumer Reports. I'd suggest you have the electrical system in your car checked by a competent technician. Walmart can do that with their state of the art Midtronics EXP-800 testers.
Replacing my old MAXX battery lasted 6 years 1 month from the day I bought it and never had a problem till last week (will not hold a charge)... I am replacing it with the same thing MAXX.
I'm happy -- rated for five years and I got six + years
