The AutoZone Duralast Gold 24F-DLG died completely in front of LNES.
Luckily it had one last crank at the office to pick up the kids on time.
The Duralast was purchased July 4, 2007. It lasted four years, five
months, 10 days (53 months, 10 days).
To be fair, I did get warning. Cold starts were more labored for the
past few weeks. I even started trickle charging the battery over the
weekend while it was sitting in the garage.
Battery warranties all seem to be 3 year free replacement. Costco also
has a 100 month prorated warranty. I decided to go with Costco since
they are the cheapest, very near, and I haven't had any problems with
returning stuff before.
