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.
I used to have a Red Top (that was in 3 different cars) that unfortunately stayed with the last one when I traded it in. And that thing would last thru 4 movies at the local drive in theater when the stock ones only lasted thru only 1 (wouldnt start after the 2nd)
