Well it was bound to happen. Since my car was manufactured in March of 1997, it has had the same Motorcraft 650 cca battery....until today. Was working on my pickup and needed to move the bird out for some room. Didn't start...for the first time ever!! So I got some good mileage out of it...about 7 years.

Anyone had one last longer than that???

I replaced it with a Duralast 845 cca battery from Honda Central (a.k.a. Autozone). Now the SC'd v8 starts quicker that it ever has. ;)

Mine is still ticking away. Tested it about a month or so ago and it's still good as new.

And there has been a big stereo in there since day one. :D

Fricken awesome batteries.

my original went 7.5 years @ 94K miles, replaced it in november. it didnt die on me, but it took an extra second to crank, so i knew it was a matter of time before it went out. replaced it with the 850. motorcraft makes some damn good batteries.
