...all I know is, I'm on my third Pep Boys, and none of them have
completed the warrantee period.  This latest 60-month battery died
after 24 months.  On the upside, they are always very good about
pro-rating the months remaining on the new battery.  This explains why
I've bought three.  Perhaps this is a marketing ploy to lock you into
their brand?  They real downside is: failure is abrupt and without
warning.  I tried to start the car, and suddenly there was no power.
Apparently, they short out internally.
