Thanks for the reccomendations!
Thanks for the last minute battery reccomendations. I ended up buying one from Advance Auto Parts. Spockster- The link made buying super simple. Thanks! William Tech- The battery info was interesting to consider. I paid online and got a 15% discount, then went to pick it up at my nearby store. I ordered a "Magna", but they slid a "Autocraft" across the counter. I reluctantly accepted it. I needed a battery Now! The following day I called 4 Advance Auto stores and asked many questions. They said that they are in the process of phasing out the "Magna" batteries and using their house brand, which is "Autocraft". Magna was made near Allentown PA by DEKA/East Penn Manufacturing, and had solid terminals. The "Autocraft" I took possession of had hollow terminals with loose nuts and screws to drop down somewhere, and the box said made in China. I visited another store, and that box said made in USA, and had solid terminals. The salesman said that it may be a repackaged Magna battery being re-branded as Autocraft. They say the new batteries are made by Johnson Controls. If you go to buy one of these, check the terminal type and the country of origen on the box.
