So my first battery lasted 3 years (cali heat kills them), and this one has lasted 3.5 years. While it still starts fine, the plastic case is swollen and is leaking acid out of the top and has corroded my factory battery tie down.
So I'm thinking going sealed this time. AGM most likely.
My car has no stereo upgrades, no aux equipment.
How do Optima red tops hold up?
