ok... what makes them so good for any application? They are made by Johnson Controls which also makes Wally World Everstart and a lot of others under different Branding labels. Do they offer a no hassle full 5 year free replacement warranty? Are they amount the highest in the industry for CCA or CA for group size? Does their technology in any way differentiate them from among all the other low cost Brands.
Johnson Controls is know for there run of the mill battery, what characteristics makes them soooo good to standout from top name Brand like NorthStar and Optima who make their own batteries... is it that they are the lowest priced? There is an old saying... you get what you pay for.:hope:
The Interstate AGM battery for the Cruze TD is one of the most expensive batteries I've found for it. *check*
It also has 10 more CCA than the X2. The warranty is not as good though, but it does cost a little less to make up for it. *check*
You linked CR for something, well they really like the Interstate. In this recent test
it won 3 out of 6 categories. *check*
And by your own words, Interstate plus Everstart (made by Interstate) won 5 out of 6 categories combined. *check*
Sounds like it meets your criteria.
