Interstate Batteries?

Are Interstate automotive batteries any good?

I've been buying my car batteries at AutoZone, but everyday on my drive to work I pass an Interstate dealer. I've never bought an Interstate battery but next time I need one, I'm thinking about giving it a try......

I like them because they are good quality, made in America and every dealer stands behind them. they may be more expensive, but I buy them through a locally owned place and they take care of my battery needs. I buy there used batteries for boats, riding mower and camper. Cars get the biggest and baddest I can get to fit in the spot!

Yes they are a very good battery like he ^^^ said, well run company that will stand behind the product, all I will use in my car and truck.
I wouldnt mind putting a Yuasa in the Acura but a little pricey and hard to find locally.

They are very good batteries. I have used and installed them in customers cars for over 20 years.

I can't say anything bad about them but when I got a new battery, I went with a Megaboost from Cycle Gear that carries a lifetime warranty. I'm just as comfortable choosing a solid store to stand behind the battery as the manufacturer.

Agreed. They are excellent batteries. Had one in my daughter's old Volvo and I drained the battery several times because of a faulty glove box light. Always took a re-charge well.
