why does my car struggle to start
I have a 2.4Liter 2009 Honda-Accord with a little more than96K on it.
In August of last I change my battery at about 75K, that battery was tested just earlier today ever since Friday my car has either not started,or it starts slow, and that battery tested bad at Advance Auto Parts here where I live in Asheboro North Carolina, thankfully I still have recept,&that battery was still under warranty,so I got the same brand new battery for free.
My question is,is Diehard are they that terrible to only last for 13 months,or could something else be wrong?
That is the first battery that I ever bought for any of my vehicles that I have owned that lasted that short about of time.
You have to make sure that the battery is properly sized for the vehicle, good clean connections and there are no parasitic drains on the battery.
Besides the correct size and minimum CCA, check the production date on the battery too. Get the one with the newest production date.
If you suspect the battery is crap, replace it now. otherwise what you have is a lawn ornament.
why take a chance on being marooned for a few lousy bucks?
