    14,000 miles, less than one year old and the battery fails. Saturn just
    replaced it under warranty but, so much for AC Delco parts!

    I test drove a Dodge truck once. The dealer needed to jump it to make it
    run. Sat in the lot so long with the dealer's alarm on it the battery was
    fully dead. No doubt the buyer of that truck has had a new battery since

    Fwiw, my car batteries only last 2 years in the heat of CA central valley.
    I even went through 3 Wal-Mart Super Cranks in one year on same vehicle.
    They just don't make them like they used to. Smaller batteries = closer
    plates, and they seem to short out with all the potholes around here.

  3. You guys just made me think.....I realize that I've never changed the
    battery in my '99 F150...Has never even given a shred of evidence that it's
    crapping out. But of course, now that I said that.... :) Have a '94 Saturn
    SL2 with the same battery I replaced the stock one in '96 with...That one's
    a Die-Hard... 8-9 years out of a battery's not to bad, is it? :)

    94 SW2, 95 SW2 and 96 SL2
    All 3 - battery and 3-year warranty expirations have coincided.
