    Battery Died This Morning......

    The car started slow this morning which was odd. Had two kids to get to school, so off we went. I made one stop and turned the car off. When I tried to start it again, very slow to turn over. I pulled the back set and noticed it was an AC Delco six year battery manufactured for GM. 2007 to 2013 seems like six years to me so it's about time for a new one. I have had good luck with Walmart batteries before, and decided to see what they had. Perfect fit, manufactured by Johnson Controls maker of Interstate Batteries, and out the door for $118 plus the core charge. Three year warranty too. Just throwing it out there for info.

    I changed mine last year...
    It was still working fine, but it was the original battery and I figured it was reaching the end of it's life.

    I got the Duracell from Sams Club...

    Got mine from a AAA Authorized Dealer in 2012 and paid more than $140 PLUS tax for it. The Group Number on mine is still 79.

    $80.00 is very good price, especially for a Caddy.
