My battery was still fine but I got a Yellowtop and I'm really happy with it. When coming to a stop at night and idling, like at a red light, especially when it's raining- when lights, defrost, wipers, stereo amp/ subwoofer etc. are running; you can really tell the difference. With stock battery, even when brand new, everything slows down, dims, and has less power. With Optima, it feels like I have three stock batteries hooked up.. you never get that dimming of lights at idle, and voltage sag.

I can run my stereo system without car running and not worry too. Car starts up with more power.. cranks faster. Yup, Optima battery is a great investment.

You might have other issues though.. that new battery may or may not fix.
