Re: slow starting, battery recommendations - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Thanks for the suggestions. I decided to go to Walmart to try to return it without a receipt. Turns out the location I went to doesn't have an auto center, even though they sell the batteries. Rather than driving all over the place, decided to just buy a replacement there. Didn't go with the AGM style since I likely won't have the car more than 4-5 more years. Hopefully my new battery desulfator will extend the life of this battery a little bit. I replaced the group 41 battery with a group 40; same CCA rating, but actually fits in the tray unlike the "OE specified" 41 which rested on raised edges of the bottom tray. The 40 is a little taller, but this is somewhat compensated by it sitting lower in the tray.
