I did a lot of research before purchasing two of these for my 08 3500HD DRW and I have not been disappointed. Solid starts early in the mornings and the needle does not even moved running the A/C, an SineWave Inverter for y LapTop, Radios, Garmin, etc. Reading these reviews does not always pay off, but I looked at quite a few sites and mostly they were 50/50, as far as I am concerned, these are 100%!
DieHard batteries are great, Sears employees are absolutely the worst. Service at the stores has become a real joke and no one at a local level seems to care. Its been a slow death for this once great company. RIP.
I purchased this battery and, within the 3 year warranty, the battery Failed. Sears provided a free replacement battery (as they should since it failed under warranty), HOWEVER their warranty on the new battery follows the original purchase date of the old policy. A warranty is intended to be product specific. The manufacture is supposed to test their product through harsh conditions (like their commercial says) and provide a product that lasts At Least the length of their warranty. I'm penalized for their inferior product not lasting under normal usage. What I'm learning from customer service is that "the first product was inferior and we do not provide a full warranty on your replacement." So I'm left asking "why should anyone buy from Sears if their products cannot stand up to their warranties?" I hope this helps people make an informed decision when considering Sears for this or any products (PS same issue with their Kenmore products).
After attending a conference in Miami I found that I had a bad battery so I call AAA and he jumped my battery for me and started my car. While I was waiting on AAA, I called Sears (I've always buy my batteries and tires at Sears and am 76 years old see can imagine how many tires and batteries I purchased from Sears.
The battery man his name is Pedro at the Sears store when I calls that he had the battery for my car. Pedro brought on a battery that was about a two/third of the battery (I have a diesel car) my car battery is a very large so it can start my diesel engine. Pedro Sears battery man said that the battery would work. I've had 3 diesel vehicles plus a large boat it is not to start a diesel engine you need a large battery. Pedro Sears battery man told me a lie, I certainly would never go back to that Sears and I think somebody should talk to him about honesty.
When I got back home here to Merritt Island, Florida I went to the Sears store that I usually deal with and (she) the manager made it right and put in the right size battery. She should be commended ( I will give her 5 stars) and Pedro should should be talked to him him and explain it is not nice to lie to customers.
A week after 3 years replacement warranty expired, couldn't start the car, jump started it and ran for an hour but didn't hold a charge after stopped.
2 Cars. 1 lasted 12 mos. and died. 1 battery got 25 months. Went to Sears for free 36 mos. replacement and Sears is gone! Called, They offered to reimburse me, so bought at ******. Find out Sears "reimbursement" is a store credit for a store no longer in my state?! This is why Sears is going under! BYE!
