Walmart Everstart any good? Got 4 years out of my OEM. Now the truck is in the driveway. I think the sitting in the cold weather without driving killed the battery

The WM Everstart MAXX batteries are good stuff. They stand up to abuse and last. The non- maxx are just average.

Interstate from Costco is what I usually do. The last one crapped out one month before the 36-month warranty, so they paid me $10 for the replacement. Yes you read that correctly. Not sure how it worked out that way. confused2

Go to NAPA, tell them you need a battery and be done with it.

I get whatever is cheapest. Vehicle Batteries are something I've never spent more on than necessary, and all of mine seem to last 5 years or so.

I get my truck batteries at Walmart. The way I look at it is there is always a Walmart close by. In the cities they are on every other corner. In the country there is a Walmart that is not to far away. Some small towns have a Walmart and no other auto parts stores.

Walmart Automotive is a major PITA to deal with. They're understaffed and take way too long to actually serve you. I made the mistake of getting an oil change there last summer because the price for synthetic was good. They told me it would take 30 minutes, so I waited around. It took almost 2 hours. Lesson learned.

If I need a battery I just pull my bad one and take it in and trade for a new one. I don't deal with there automotive department.

When the battery in my Tundra died I went to Wal Mart because I have never had a problem with their batteries. The batteries in a Tundra have a different post orientation then most. All I saw were group 24s. I asked the guy at the counter about a 27. He said they quit selling 27s in the type I needed. I guess Wal Mart shoppers opt for the cheapest battery.

UPDATE

went to Walmart yesterday. Guy says yes sir Mr. Skinner, got Ya this Everlast for $140. I say "do it bra" I go do some shopping, come back in half hour, my poor Meth Head says wellll, Mr. Skinnnnner, Our battery wouldn't work cuz the posts are on the wrong side and your cables wont reach confused2


I called my dealer's service guy, told him my problem. He says, "Mr. Skinner, you have the warranty from Hell and you qualify for a BRAND-NEW battery, plus I'm due for my FREE Synthetic oil change. I said "BOOK IT"

Dropped the Titan off this morning, couple hours later, he calls me. Mr. Skinnnnner, we dont have the right battery, can we keep your car till Monday, or you can come in for a loaner. I said Monday is fine just make sure and detail that black SOB. \\all is good

final update coming Monday cheers
