Car Battery

Post by alanjh595 »

I am looking to replace my car battery. I have called a couple of places and I can't believe the prices they are quoting me.
Anywhere from $260-$303-$394.
I am looking for a premium battery + install, no hassle, in and out immediate service.

Any recommendations?

Sadly, they are that expensive today. I just had my wifes replaced late summer. It was 245.00 all in including install and disposal fee for the old one. It was a premium brand. Had it done at Kal Tire, they had the best price but only by like 20.00.

Unfortunately only way you are going to get it any cheaper is do it yourself installation.
I’m sure YouTube has video to help you.

Good luck

The install is less than the tax on the battery. Well, almost.

Yeah, yeah, I know this. (semi funny....1/10) The problem is getting to the battery compartment. It is under the floorboards somewhere.

Sometimes designers & engineers do crazy things in putting vehicle together, yes easy to assemble at the factory.
Totally different story when trying to do it yourself in the backyard.
