Looking at getting a new batt for the taurus, as the one thats in it took a crap on me.

I called advance and the only thing that they offer is their AutoCraft Silver its a 2year batt for $85.
I also called Napa, the only Batt that they offer is their 7536R battery for $76.

Advance Specs:
Group Size: 27F
Voltage: 12V
Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) @ 0°F: 650
Cranking Amps @ 32°F: 813
Reserve Capacity (minutes): 130
Warrenty: 2 years

Napa specs:
Battery BCI # : 36R
Battery CA @ 32 Degrees F : 800
Battery CCA @ 0 Degrees F : 650
Battery Height : 8 1/8"
Battery Length : 10 3/16"
Battery Posts Type : Top Post
Battery Reserve Capacity : 130
Battery Voltage : 12 Volt
Battery Weight : 42 lbs
Battery Width : 6 13/16
Warrenty: 75 month



Who makes the Advance Batterys? I think Dekka makes the Napa batterys.

I can't answer that. But I can tell you I got the autocraft silver battery last week and it's still going strong~~!!! uh, yeah. The only reason I got that is because I get good prices at advanced bc one of the employees gives me his discount. Otherwise I'd go for Optima ($$$) or even a duralast, which gives a really good warranty. Of course theres' always diehard and interstate. But if you're going to go with either of the two you mentioned, I'd rather napa.

If you're a Costco member I've had good luck with their batterys. I replaced my Jeep battery last week. $68 with 100 month warranty.

Go to Wal-Mart. Most stores open 24 hrs, you can get replacements without any hassle whether in town or on the road. I've used them for years and have no complaints.

Yeah, alot of batteries are made by Johnson Controls. Just get the cheapest one...or get the higher end stuff from Optima. Dry cell battery FTW

Oh and by the way, Advance's battery is 2 years free replacement/72 months pro rated. If you have them test your battery beforehand, and it's bad, they'll print up a $5 off coupon on the print out of the EXP1200 machine.
