The EverStart MAXX-35N (North) is part of the car battery
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, car battery
models like the MAXX-35N (North) are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Life test measures how a battery endures repeated charge-and-discharge cycles at hot-climate engine-compartment temperatures. The more cycles endured while maintaining a higher voltage, the higher the score.
Reserve capacity estimates how long batteries can run a car if the charging system fails.
CCA performance reflects voltage at our load of half the average claimed CCA for each group size after cranking for 15 seconds at 0º F. We charged batteries at the 14.5 volts that vehicles typically supply, rather than the higher voltage that manufacturers use. Batteries charged at the lower voltage met BCI voltage standards for a fully charged battery.

Purchased this battery and exactly 2 weeks after the warranty the battery shorted out and overflowed acid into the engine compartment. It just became weaker and weaker. The battery was hot when I took it to the store, I presume due to the internal shorting. The associate rolled it back outside, ha. Typical Wal-Mart quality.<br />If you going to have the car for under 3 more years, this battery is fine. Otherwise, get something else.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Definitely a good buy !
Bought one 5 years ago - died just after 5 years - But it is warrantied for 9 years - took it back to [@] with original receipt and they pro-rated it - Saved 35 dollars off my new Everstart Maxx. - Depending on which [@] you go to - it seems that all [@] are not aware that they can pro-rate car batteries after 3 years. I started with a car care associate and then had to go to Customer service.
