Do you guys recommend getting this battery to run for your cars since, it does have a great battery life, CCA rating is also great.

Or do you guys just prefer the stock battery that came in the car? i personally from what people have told me that the dry cell batteries are great, plus this battery has a life time warranty as well or 3 years..

I dont know much about batteries but if you are going to use your car for everyday use, go with the stock.
I just don't know where to buy the stock battery outside of the dealer.

I use optimas in all my cars , they are expensive but last much longer and dont corrode battery terminals . The red top is what you want as a replacement for stock .

For me it'd be a bit of a coin toss. One costs more and lasts longer, one costs less but doesn't last as long. Otherwise I tend to not put much strain on batteries, so I'd be fine going either way when the time comes (assuming fitment is spot on).

The yellow top is more for using high power audio , it can withstand many discharge cycles . The red top gives the most reliable starting performance . Unless you need to be playing a high powered stereo at the beach or something then red top is much better choice for a everyday driver .

I wouldn't replace the battery on a brand new car , typically after a couple years I replace it with an optima . Sears used to sell them but now they have their own version . I have been buying mine from Amazon and Summit racing . Most chain auto parts store also carry them .

Must agree with Iqfanatic - it doesn't make sense to me to "fix something that's not broken" so I will wait till the stock battery dies.
